Yeah, <chuckle>...
But, flippant remarks aside, there's virtually nothing that'll be able to help much w/ the purple glop...altho what to try to do to minimize the pain would depend entirely on what the flooring is, obviously.
Good would be if it's a solid hardwood floor w/ a very good shape finish it might be possible to refinish it and find not much actually penetrated into the wood itself.
It'll penetrate into vinyl, etc., and there's nothing to be done. Laminates as well likely will absorb into the pores and there's not enough material to remove to do anything other than take up the worst of it. The solvent eats any finish known to man and when that's gone to protect the underlying wood, then you've got it into the wood pores itself and then it is done for. I've not tried the wood bleach route on it (oxalic acid) but it can do about as much damage as to matching a floor as the stain or require expert tinting, etc., to manage to recolor to not be obvious.
All in all, it's probably new floor time...

LOL... Umm... Is the floor made out of vinyl tile ? Carpet ? Wood ?
It would have been better to PREVENT the stain in the first place by putting down a drop cloth in your work area when you are going to be using chemicals which could cause a stain...

Paint the rest of the floor the same color so you don't notice it.

If the floor is dirt, he could just cover it up with a shovel load of soil.
