I had a rubber bottomed bath mat on the floor of my bathroom which, when I picked up, left lots of the rubber on the lino. :cry: :? :(

I can't get it off either.

Any ideas for me too, please?

I'd probably try a non-stick spatula...

...and if that doesn't work, grab it by the edge and peel it off - then deal with the mess left behind.

That happened to me once and I used a wallpaper scraper.

Hold a hairdryer on a high setting over the rubber, and then gently peel the rubber away using a wallpaper scraper as Rusty suggested, or a palette knife. Heating the rubber for a few minutres makes it soft and more easily removed.
