Removing Stains Transferred from Subfloor to Linoleum

How do I remove stains on linoleum flooring? They are from the plywood floor beneath the linoleum. It is a pink/red colored ink like stuff that is all around the border of plywood and it just seeped through to the linoleum flooring. I've tried everything!

After trying spray cleaner, rubbing alcohol, fingernail polish remover, and you see that it isn't working, then I would do the following after rinsing the floor off:

Rub the area with superfine (number 0000) steel wool dipped in liquid floor wax.

Wash the area with soapy water, dry, then wax as usual.

Hope this helps!
