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.
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.

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. Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove them?

Try Mr Clean white sponges. They will clean just about anything. (11/11/2009)
Yikes, I've never seen that happen before. You could also try Brillo pads. (11/11/2009)
Don't panic. I did the same thing awhile back. I used everything I could think of, but nothing worked. It does eventually wear off just by washing the floor as you would normally do. It's been three months now, and the floor looks the same as it did before my blunder.
