Someone left a wet towel on our timber floor and I assume the chlorine has left a mark. Any ideas about how to remove it? We don't want to have to sand and re-seal the boards!
This might be something that our resident flooring expert @PJA might be able to assist with.
Perhaps a light sand and varnish? If its old though it will be very difficult to match the colour.
Thanks for the suggestions. I tried the car wax suggestion yesterday. It didn't seem to have any effect. Looks like I might have to try sanding a little, although I'm nervous about making it worse.
look up "Orange Oil" on line. there are many positives and a few dissenters. I have a colleague who swears by it.
I don't really like recomending things that i have not used, or even seen in action.
Like you, i see sanding as a last minute, drastic action.
if you are going to sand anyway, could giving an oil, do any more damage??
Chase it on line, pop inot Bunnings and read the instructions carefully, they may even have other oils or ideas, in store.
I was going to suggest acetone (nail polish remover) but then thought it may too much. Then Deb suggested why not try tea tree oil. Nothing lost nothing gained so they say. I don't envy you having to sand it back.
I feel your pain @_Marley_. We had a mat underneath our dogs' water bowl that was damp, when I lifted it I was greeted with this mess... I'm guessing the only fix here is to call back the floor polishing company.
