Olive oil on the floor! Help!

DS got a hold of a (cold!) pan that had residual olive oil in it. He pulled it to the floor and rubbed it in. Noemi have a slick spot on my kitchen floor. Ideas on how to get it up?

Baking soda, baby powder, corn starch. Anything that can soak it up. Or scrub it with a scrubber sponge and dish soap; like on your hands and knees Cinderella-style scrub. That should cut through the oil

Salt will soak it up, just pour it, wait about 10 minutes then wipe it up. Depending on how much is left you may have to repeat. An alcohol based cleaner, or rubbing alcohol will work too.

Will vinegar strip the top of the laminate? It's crappy stuff.

I had to do it to my carpet when ds squeezed a bottle of baby oil gel all over. Ugh. Oil sucks.

Probably not if you wipe it up right away, but if you're concerned, do a test spot somewhere non-obvious first.
