Bamboo floor glue residue.....

just installed bamboo hardwood floors (home legend from Home Depot) on my slab. We used home depots 1408 glue. There is some glue residue still on the planks, I have tried mineral spirits and an adhesive remover the home depot sold and it doesn’t seem to come up. Are there any suggestions? It looks as if the glue stained the floor and took the shine off of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It's called etching the finish and is permanent. Quite common with urethane type wood floor adhesives. I know of no solution and it can be a major problem. I've seen and heard of complete floors being replaced because of it. Why these places continue to sell a product that can be so problematic is beyond me.
