sticky floor

I recently removed some vinyl tiles from a the beautiful hardwood floor in my house, but the glue that was on the sticky tile still remains. I used Goo-Gone, but still sticky. What should I do to recover this floor?

Probably will need to be sanded and refinished.

A solvent like mineral spirits might dissolve the adhesive but I'm not sure you'd want to use a lot of it inside the house - if you do, be sure to provide good fresh air ventilation!
