Urine stains may seem impossible to clean on linoleum floors. If you do not clean the urine immediately, it will change the colour of the linoleum floor and leave behind a yellow stain. The stains appear unpleasant and leave behind a strong odour. When you notice the urine stain, you need to clean it immediately to prevent ruining your linoleum floors.
Soak up any wet urine with a sponge or old cloth.
Sweep the stained area to remove loose dirt and debris.
Fill a 1-gallon bucket with dish washing soap and warm water. Add 1 cup of vinegar to the soap water, and then scrub the urine stain with a bristle brush or cloth. If the stain remains, you will need to try an alternative cleaning method.
Combine equal parts of baking soda and water to create a paste. Cover the urine stain with the paste, and allow it to set for 15 minutes. Scrub the area with a sponge to remove the stain. If traces of the urine stain still exist, then try the next step.
Soak a cloth in rubbing alcohol. Scrub the stained area with the cloth. Rinse the cloth and continue to apply rubbing alcohol until the stain disappears.
Clean the previously stained area with a mop and dry with a soft washcloth.
