Best Answer

My son spilled a half bottle of nail polish on my linoleum and I did not see it until It had dried. I used BORAX (COMPLETELY NON TOXIC and you can find it at any grocery storei in the laundry section) and a scrubbing brush. CAME RIGHT UP and did not ruin the finish!!! I swear by Borax. == == try brake parts cleaner and a q-tip try fingernail polish remover or lighter fluid It has probably taken off the shine from that place on the floor. Check with your local flooring company to see if you can get a wax or polish to restore the floor's sheen.
