Flooring and Carpeting/purple stain on vinyl floor

Question
When I removed a small mat  there was a purple stain left on the vinyl floor it will not come off. Can you help?

Answer
Judy,

The foam / latex backing of the throw rug traps moisture and thus stains the vinyl. There is no way that I know of to remove the blue / purple stain. This condition also occurs when excessive water gets on the floor at the tub or toilet and eventually seeps in at the edge in a bathroom.
I wish I could help more,

Chris
