Re: Problem: Refinishing Pine Hardwood Floor

said by Jtmo:

If you live in snow country, maybe the kids many decades ago came in with snowy feet?

Or, maybe while the owners were out the dogs pissed on the entry to say why did you leave me alone? Very common on carpet and if many decades ago you might not notice smells now?

The stains might be new or not new. But the newer ice melt the safe kind is more "oily" I recall I had a issue on tile floor in my old house. It was easy to get off of the tile but in the grout it was hard to get out.

If the splotches were from oil, the application of mineral spirits should have evened it out -- but it didn't.

Oh didn't see they used mineral oil, I thought they just put down water to show the issues.
