Repairing a Scratch in Linoleum Floor

I have a very expensive linoleum floor in our kitchen which has a scratch across it for about 3 feet. It looks like something cut it when dragged across it. We can't remember anything that did the scratching, but it is discolored.


We would like to know what we could do to get the color back and make the scratches less noticeable without replacing the linoleum. Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks.

I had a V shaped cut (about 5 inches on each leg) in my linoleum /vinyl floor. I positioned duct tape underneath and pressed down to hold the edges then filled the torn edges with layer after layer of matching nail polish. This has held up for 10 years with just occasional refilling with polish - and it's right in the doorway.

It can definitely be repaired but don't do it yourself. Call the store where you bought it, or any store if you don't live near that one. They have a method that will render the place invisible.
