chemistry question #2080

Ken Louie, a 71 year old male from Washougal, WA asks on May 3, 2004,


I spilled some iodine disinfectant on my vinyl tile floor. As an old chemist, the only chemical I know that will decolorize iodine is sodium thiosulfate. Is there another household chemical that will decolorize iodine on vinyl floors?
