Removing Oven Cleaner Stain From Slate Tile Floor

Hi, I accidentally spilled some oven cleaner onto my kitchen floor tiles and only realized the next day. This has left a stain which I can't seem to remove. Does anyone know how I could remove it? They are (unsealed) quarry slate tiles. Thanks!

I wish I knew. I heard that putting oven cleaner on bikes mufflers would clean them wonderfully. But it got on the grey powder sides under the motor and left large weird stains. Can anyone help

I spilled oven cleaner on my linoleum floor and a generic Target brand "Magic Eraser" sponge was the only thing that got the stains out (after multiple tries with other things). I'd test a small section first before trying one on slate, though. Also, prepare to scrub if it works. A lot.

Thanks, I've just ordered some Magic Erasor so I'll give it a try. In the meantime, I'm happy for any other suggestions as well:)

Try vinegar & baking soda in a gall of water or less, good luck.
