I spilled nail polish remover (non-acetone) on my linoleum floor

So I accidentally spilled this dark pink nail polish remover (non-acetone) on the linoleum floor in our bathroom. The linoleum is the new linoleum, not the real one. I understand that nail polish remover that DOES contain acetone eats through the plastic and stains it that way, but this nail polish does not contain acetone. Is there any way to remove the stain? Thanks

Is your floor really linoleum or is it vinyl?

I don't think it's a "stain". I think it's a permanent chemical reaction between the "new linoleum" (whatever that is) and the nail polish remover. You may have to replace the flooring, or perhaps find a throw rug or mat of some kind to cover it. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
