    The laminate floor in my bathroom has dye/paint on it and I don't know how to get it off. The color came from the dye/decoration on a plastic bag that got wedged under a hamper and got wet. The ink transferred to the floor and now I don't know how to get it off. The flooring is not the best, and I know that if I use a scrubby on it I'll just damage the floor. Any suggestions? The floor is off white, so something that would bleach out the color without damaging the floor might work, but I don't know anything like that either (regular bleach will not work). Thanks!

    When this happens to the counter top around my sink, I soak a paper towel in bleach and let it sit over night. By morning, the stain is always on the paper towel.

    Leaving anything wet on a lam floor may not be a good idea. I would test anything I was going to try first in a closet unless you have an extra peice of flooring.
