Best Answer

That stain was probably caused by the PVC joint cleaner, not the glue, however, I have had luck using a product called "Goof-Off" which is basically denatured alcohol. Be advised that it may damage your flooring. Choose a small test area. Also, you will have to reapply a finish to the floor, such as a wax or sealer, per product instructions.
