Question

How do I clean pencil lead off finished vinyl tiles without hands and knees scrubbing? I'm looking for a product that won't strip finish.


Answer

I suggest you try a mildly abrasive (white) pad on a doodle-bug? Graphite should not be that difficult to remove from a finished surface.
Have you tried damp mopping?
