Bathroom flooring question..

I have what is either vinyle tiles or linoleum flooring in my bathrooms. How can I tell exactly what it is? The previous owners decided the bathroom floor was a better place to pee then the toilet. I have tried eveyrthing to remove the stains and replaceing the floor with tile has cross my mind for later on but im looking for an easy fix for now. If I found the same floor material would I be able to remove what is stained and replace them? Ive tried Kaboom, tilex, and bleach with no luck on removing the stains. The guest bath is so bad that the tiles look to be seperating and lifting somewhat. I did find that the home owners used drop in toilet bowl tank cleaners that messed up the toilet seals. I replaced those last week and all the leaky toilets stopped. This probably didnt help the flooring either. Thanks for any advice on this. Im new to owning a home and like most ppl I need to save $ by doing it my self.

Not sure if you found a solution since your orig post, ...
so, If they are tiles, which it sounds like they are, since some are lifting and seperating, then Yes, you can replace what is bad with the same material. I would inspect the bad areas to be sure the subfloor is sound enough and clean to accept the new.

It's not likely that you will find an exact match for the tile. A quick fix would be to purchase one of those rugs with a cut out to fit around base of toilet.
