vinyl flooring

Just put new vinyl flooring in my kitchen, now looking for a rug to put by our back door.
We use to have one with a rubber backing but that caused yellow stain on our old vinyl.
We don't want to make the same mistake with the new vinyl.
The clearance for the door is thin also.
I was thinking of cutting out a piece of the left over "new" vinyl and placing that down and then a rubber backed rug.
Any suggestions???

Sometimes, even vinyl stains vinyl. It is called "plasticizer migration." So it's a crapshoot.
