Reparing Linoleum without having to buy a new kitchen floor

I have one of those large sheets of linoleum,white, that covers the whole kitchen floor plus part of the hallway down to the back door. A while ago, it got nicked in a couple of places, near the counter and near the fridge where the knife fell, and over near the back door, when we had to move some furniture out. Is there a white filler to fill these cracks, rather than having to purchase a whole sheet of linoleum and replace it just for those little cuts? I am very fussy and painting over with white paint would not do it.

I was looking for something like this as well. I hope for the both of us that there is something we can use. I have a dark spot in my light linoleum that I would love to fix up before I sell my house.

I would have assumed with a lot of people having linoleum in their kitchen (things break when they fall on tile floors) that someone would have invented a filler that works the way what worked with repairing leather and leatherette couches. I mean there are usually accidents, you drop a knife and it lands blade first.

Sorry I can't help you on this! My kitchen is ceramic tile and very slippery when wet, lol. I bet if you find a dealer they would know how to fix the marks in your floor. They sell everything else why not a putty for floors.

I hope they do. They sell sealants for bathtubs and it is almost the same thing, so why not sell something for linoleum along with a color package to match?

I wish there was. It is a fairly new floor.
