Obviously I mistakenly put the bathroom rugs in the dryer and I just realized that some of the backing is now on the tile floor and stuck!!. Any ideas how to get this off. Elbow grease doesn't work....thanks...

Oh must be your rug wasn't completely dry. Try some floor cleaner that you have for the tile.

Heat it with a hair dryer on low. Remove with a wooden paint stick.

use a paint scraper, or a plastic one for putty if you are worried about scratches. That and the goo gone combined should do it. Any residue and you can just.......Cover it up with the rug!!!LOL \:D

You are right hairy one. But it also leaves a real slippery spot that is hard to clean.

Goo Gone is the best. My daughter played basketball last year and some how her (new) white uniform ended up in the wash with other laundry and of course, I never noticed until I took it out of the dryer and found nice red sparkle crayon melted ALL over the shorts and top !!!

So after about 5 hrs and countless washes I finally (with Goo Gone) got every bit of red sparkle crayon out of the uniform. It sure saved my behind
