oxalic acid

I am going to use oxalic acid to bleach a pine floor in my kitchen.

My question - what should be sued to neutralize this? I have used this on furniture before and did not neutralize, but since this is a kitchen floor, I will like to neutralize.

Thanks

Neutralizing oxalic acid

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for neutralizing the bleach and cleaning the bleach from the wood. After you have neutralized the bleach according to their directions, use a sponge to apply a vinegar wash to ensure that all the bleach is neutralized. Follow this by using a sponge to rinse the surface with water. Don’t allow too much water or neutralizing agent to saturate the wood." Bleaching to Lighten Wood & Remove Stain.
