I just cleaned my oven and didn't realize I had sprayed some oven cleaner on my linoleum flooring and some of the grease dripped off onto the floor as well. How do I clean this off my floor as it had dried there before I noticed?
Try the magic eraser or Barkeepers Friend
Use baking soda and vinegar and some sort of scrub brush.

I was cleaning my oven with Easy Off Oven cleaner. I noticed that there are red splats on my linoleum floor and I can't get them out. Any suggestions?

Have you tried rubbing a little toothpaste over the mark? It works when I get marks on my linoleum. Good luck :)
I found something that works! I wiped a good amount of Soft Scrub (the kind with Bleach), let it sit for about 5 minutes, and then scrubbed it with a pumice stone. Relief!
Or try hand sanitizer gel, that removes permanent marker from kitchen work tops - it might do the trick.
I did exactly that and what worked for me was Comet with bleach and a lot of elbow grease. Hope this helps.
Clorox spray with bleach. Green bottle. Spray. Lay sit 1 hour. Gone! Works great.
A huge Thank you! Your recommendation worked for me. Huge relief.
Dude. I don't know who you are, but thank you thank you thank you! I'm moving and today's my last day to be able to clean and i figured I'd do the oven last because gross. When I'm done, i see these flipping spots everywhere! Then I'm tracking them with my boots and i was scrubbing comet, baking soda and my finger because that's all that would work.
Tried everything to get this off.
The green bottle Clorox with bleach was a miracle!!
Sprayed it and let it rest.
Half hour later.
I have a question . I got floor cleaner on my floor its been there for hours now. I havent been able to clean it and most likely tomorrow Ill get the clorox with bleach in it.
I cleaned my oven and the overspray got on my linoleum floor and i had big brown spots all over my white floor.

MILDEW STAIN REMOVER WITH BLEACH in a green spray bottle , its for cleaning bathroom tiles , i sprayed it on the floor and then emulsified it with a stiff cleaning brush , I let it sit for 20 min and i couldn't believe IT WORKED and I didn't have to scrub it hard afterward . and the stains are gone ,Thank God ,i thought i would have to replace the whole Kitchen Floor .Thankyou Scrub Free
Thank you so much for posting this! We had the same problem and after finding this wonderful post, problem solved!! Works like a charm, no scrubbing!!!
Thank you! The comet & bleach combination with a lot of scrubbing worked for me. Thank the Lord! I didnt have to replace my floor.
Apply straight bleach to a magic eraser sponge and apply a decent layer of straight bleach to the area affected. Scrub over area with magic eraser until the stain is gone.
Thank you so much its great

I was cleaning my kitchen with oven cleaner yesterday. It worked great on ever thing. But now I have brown spots all over my floor.
How can I clean brown spots caused by oven cleaner off of my vinyl floor?
