Rub them with a tennis ball. You can cut a slit in the tennis ball, and slide it over the end of your broom--saves your back!

I have tried this. But it did not work. I work in the Police Academy and even then buffing machines are not taking it off. Any advise?

The easier way to clean rubber sole marks off a floor (any) is just to rub with your shoes (while you are in them). A long up and back motion (like the pawing motion a horse does his leg), or you can go in circles. Lightly. It works! I learned this years ago when I had kiddos who loved to slide across floors, marking them up. I just removed some marks yesterday at work in our break room.

A good old fashioned eraser. ;-)

I think WD-40 does a pretty fair job. We use it on our hardwood floors and it's great.


I sure do like the sound of that tennis ball trick, though.
