Draw oil out of newly sanded steps

Hi all,

I have a relatively old house (50's) and I sanded the steps . I had not sealed them yet and my daughter dripped some sauce on the stair. She then tried to clean it with Pledge with natural Orange Oil (I wasn't home - I certainly would have told her NO!). Oil, the worst thing. So now I have a slightly darker spot on the stairs. How can I draw the oil out and clean it without discoloring the stair? Don't want one stair that's different than all the others after the cleaning.

Any ideas?

I'd try scrubbing it with some paint thinner and then resand it once it dries.

Mark, would rubbing the area with something like oatmeal or cat litter help in the absorption of the oils? Just a curious question.

I don't know not something I've run across much
Kitty litter works great on standing oil but not sure how effective it would be when the oil has sunk deep into the wood.

marker,

COOL. Tried that this morning and it seems to have did the trick. The spot looks a little lighter than the rest of the wood. I will resand next and see how it goes.

Thank you.
