Windex is really good at removing ink, but I recently had some fabulous luck with an item bought at Dollar Tree called Awesome. Fingernail polish can take the floor finish off, so be careful. You can try to scrub lightly with a green or white scrub pad. Good luck! (06/27/2005)

You might need something containing acetone. If there was no acetone in the nail polish remover you used, try another brand, it might work better. You can also purchase just acetone I believe at a beauty supply store. Also to try, lighter fluid or gasoline. Be careful! Duh, they're flammable! (just a little disclaimer for my hint) I know these work on other stains & stuff on linoleum. (06/27/2005)
Sol U Mel by Melaleuca will remove it without harming the floor. I used it on school bus upholstery that was deliberately soaked with ball point ink and that had been left untreated for weeks. It will also take out permanent maker. contact thru website @ www.healthywealthyandnontoxic.com (06/28/2005)
Isoprel Alcohol - just pour it on and let it sit for awhile. Wipe off and try again if the stain is still there. (06/28/2005)
I used oxyclean and a scotch scrubntoss pad, the stain is almost invisible, but nothing else would work I tried everything: nail polish remover, windex, rubbing alcohol but oxyclean worked the best. (08/11/2005)
