Use A Fabric Bath Mat On Vinyl



Q:  I have a lovely vinyl floor in my bathroom.  I have noticed it is turning yellow under my bath mat.  How can I remove this yellow staining from the vinyl?




A: Unfortunately, you are not going to like the answer to your question.


I assume that you have been using a bath mat with a rubber backing. It is common to have yellowing under a rubber backed mat and the unfortunate answer is that there is nothing that will remove the yellowing.


It is best to use a fabric type mat that will allow the floor underneath to breathe.
