Re: Problem: Refinishing Pine Hardwood Floor
said by Pocono Joe :We can probably come with some other things to try, but I think oxalic acid would be my first choice.
Will give the acid a try; nothing to lose. At this point I guess the alternative is a new hardwood floor over the original floor.
Tried Sherwin Williams for the oxalic acid, they only sell a wood bleach that contains oxalic acid. Will try some smaller hardward stores today for the crystals / powder. One question, if I try this on a small area, how do I neutralize the acid; I don't want to leave water stains on the floor. Thanks.
Typical -- newer employees don't seem to know they sell it. I've had to ask for a manager to find it before
Directions for this product say to neutralize with 1 tablespoon baking soda per gallon of water. I always recommend following the directions so make sure to read the label for the product you use.
