Andy I would suggest two things. One call around to see if there is a local lab. They may can provide a sample kit for analysis. Second buy a trail camera and set it up and see if you have a rat giving a present

Could it be a combination of the residue from the Swiffer cleaning solution buildup combined with dirt that creates a smudge when you skid across the floor, sort of like the smudge you get when you try to remove some adhesives from glass bottles and jars.

I would try giving the floor a good old fashioned mopping with hot water and a glug of sudsy ammonia.

Good luck!

Inquiring people want to know! I want to know!

What does it taste like? ;)

Next time they appear, I'll collect a sample for you.

LOL Andy. Gotta admit you got me back! :)

I guess if you wanna know badly enough you could collect a sample and send it off to a lab.

If not I think this discussion has run its course. (Famous last words spoken 37 pages before the end of some random discussion on the Internet.)

This thread might soon deserve a reality show of its own. The Destination America channel runs paranormal piffle 24/7.

I'm waiting for a reappearance so I can take some pictures to share. I've charged my camera battery and I'm poised and ready.

Noting has happened since we started talking about it. Maybe the trick is to keep talking...

Well I hope you find the answer. Nothing like a mysterious happening to peak our interest.

Well, this is my attempt to 'keep talking.'

Perhaps your SO is leaving the marks and waiting to see how long before you catch her? Or how far you will go in investigating the matter? She's not a jokester is she?

Not likely. She's as flummoxed as I am. And she's not a jokester.
