Red stain caused by red throw rug bleeding onto light-colored linoleum.
I have tried peroxide and baking soda but it didn’t completely remove
the red stain.

I don’t know if this is the “correct” way to do it, but I’d use bleach. Clorox Clean up is a weak enough formula, or just dilute some bleach on your own. I don’t think it would damage the linoleum. Other than that, I would think the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser would possibly work. Maybe even something like “Goof Off”. It’s really good stuff.

    Clorox clean up -its got enough bleach in it to thoroughly remove all the transferred red dye but not too much that it will effect the finish of your linoleum

    I have used Coke(the pop) and a tooth brush to scrub tile clean, it might work for your situation

    I would try a Mr. Clean Sponge. They are the most amazing product I have found for stuff like this. Make sure and buy the “Mr. Clean” brand, the store brands just don’t do the same thing. Good luck!
