Linoleum is a very popular and durable flooring material. While it can stand up to heavy traffic, it is prone to getting scuff marks from shoes. The scuff marks can make the floor look dirty, but you can try a few simple methods to get them up and make your floor look like new once again. If one method doesn't work, move on to another.
Things You'll Need
- Baby oil
- Baking soda
Rub the scuff marks with a pencil eraser. Wipe up any eraser debris with a damp rag.
Place a little bit of baby oil onto a rag and rub it over the scuff mark. Clean up any remaining baby oil with a damp rag.
Sprinkle a little baking soda into a bowl. Add some water to make a thick paste. Dip a rag into the paste and rub it over the scuff mark. Rinse with a damp rag.
