What type of paint was used on the stairs? Was it an epoxy coating. I think that mineral spirits would dissolve the rubber, but want to make sure it also doesn't take the paint with it.

Mineral spirits was my first thought also. It shouldn't affect cured enamel or epoxy.

Not sure what type of finish it is but I doubt it is epoxy,but there are a lot of marks,I may try it in a hidden spot and see what happens.

Just to be clear, the paint is a shiny enamel and not flat - correct?

IF it were paint, normal foot traffic would wear it away,,, 1 of the issues long faced in forums, imo, has been the lack of communication - both on the part of posters AND responders,,, we often do not have the same vocabulary,,, i suffer from that also - my bride often uses terms w/which i am unfamiliar - eg, she wants shutters for the windows inside the house - they're called plantation shutters,,, while i know what defines shutter, my bride ( bless her heart ! ) confuses mullions & muntins so i often have that dog look on my face ( where the dog looks at you & tilts his head as if to say - wth are you talking about ? )

paint can be scraped off easily - a good epoxy coating cannot
