I have yellow stains on my vinyl flooring due to bathroom mats. Ordinarily this wouldn't be a big problem. But, my husband and I are trying to redecorate this bathroom (keeping the vinyl floor) and cannot find bathroom mats that are the same size as the former mats. How can we get rid of these stains?

Try using "0000" steel wool, it should work if the stains are not too deep. Good luck!

Try using Soft Scrub with bleach on the stains ... put it down on the stained parts, let it sit for about 5 minutes and then rinse if off before putting down the new mats. It works for most stains and scuff marks on linoleum and vinyl tile.

I would not recommend any of the above procedures and this is why.

1) Using any type of bleach on a sheet vinyl floor my have reverse effects of what your trying to accomplish. It may bleach the spot enough to give it a lighter appearance than the rest of the sheet vinyl. It can also dull the surface permanently thus making cleaning more difficult.

2) Steel Wool will (if not very carefull) put undo stress on the wear layer and most likely reduce or damage it.

I would recommend using Armstrong's New Beginnings Cleaner before trying any of these above mentioned methods.
