White Out Stain on a Wood Floor

I dropped "white out" on my wood floor,i n front of my desk. It made quite a bad spill. I'm afraid my efforts to clean up only made matters worse further spreading the stain.

First I tried using nail polish remover, bad move, and it did not work. Then I tried washing with spray on cleaner and a rag. Still no help. Finally, I washed down the whole area with ammonia. You guessed it, the white is still there... I think a little came up, but not much.


Any suggestions? As this is in front of the desk and off to the left side, a throw rug would not work. The desk is around 600 lbs., so I can't move that either.

Any ideas anyone? Thanks so much for your suggestions. I hope you have some!

Try using wd40 spray and a clean rag - if that does not work try latex paint thinner on a clean rag.
