How do I clean spilled fabric softener on a tile floor?

I woke up to a huge fabric softener spill in the laundry room. Half a bottle of (purple) fabric softener on the tile floor.

I tried soaking it up with a towel, but it was not really working.

Got a better method?

Wife says to use rubbing alcohol. it should cut some of the oil in the fabric softner. be sure not to breathe the alcohol fumes.

You can probably get a dust pan (or use 2) or a towel to move the fabric softener into the dust pan and then dump it into a bucket or bag lined trash can. After you get most of it up, then you can use white vinegar and a different towel to de-grease the residue. You may have to do this several times to get all of it.
