Cleaning up old black marks on a linoleum kitchen floor can be difficult, and may seem impossible. There are however, a few remedies that can clean the black mark easily and quickly.
So before you end up covering up the black marks with an area rug, or even worse, new flooring, consider some simple options for cleaning that linoleum floor in your kitchen.
- Apply about 1 tsp. of toothpaste to the black mark. Rub with a soft cloth until the mark disappears. Repeat if necessary until the mark is gone. Make sure the toothpaste is the paste rather than the gel type.
- Apply about 1 tsp. of baking soda to the black mark and rub in with a sponge. Repeat until the mark is gone.
- Drill a hole into an old tennis ball. Insert the end of a broom handle into the tennis ball. Work over the area of the black mark with the tennis-ball broom. This will remove the mark without you having to bend over.
- Erase the marks with a regular eraser you would purchase in a school supply store.
