How do you know when the oven is thoroughly rinsed?

If the product gets on linoleum or other type of flooring, will it leave a permanent stain? Is there some recommendation for removal?
This is a caustic product and there is a warning statement on the label which cautions the user to put newspapers on the floor for protection. It is possible that if the problem is treated right away some of the "rust-like" stains will disappear. We recommend a watery paste of Zud® cleanser. Allow the pasty substance to remain on the affected area for 10-15 minutes, then wipe gently with paper towels to remove all residue. If neither product is immediately available, paper towels saturated with water may aid in removing the stain. Also, allow the wet towels to remain on the area for the same amount of time, then rinse continually for several applications.

No, it should not be used in a continuous-cleaning or microwave oven. This type of oven surface is extremely porous. If the product is used it will affect the appearance of the oven; it will become gray or white in color after the product has been removed particularly on the oven floor.
NOTE:If used in a continuous-cleaning or microwave oven in error, we recommend rinsing the oven well with vinegar and water only to remove the product residue. This will not reverse the appearance of the surface (the oven may have the appearance of being gray or whitish after product is removed). Additionally there is a possibility that the continuous-cleaning feature will no longer be functional. There will be no effect on food/cooking or baking after the oven is rinsed.
