Did someone spill Kool-Aid or red wine on your hardwood floor. Well, before you bust out the power tools, I have a few home remedies that will lift up that stain and require a lot less power tools. Before trying any measure on your hardwood floor, make sure that you test it out first in a corner, under a carpet because you want to make sure, there is not going to be any damage. Beverages are the most often to spill. To clean this up, just take a wash cloth, get some ammonia on there. Rub the area gently, let it dry and then once it's all finished, just get some wax on your fingertips and polish the area. Now watermark stains often go undetected for days and then when you finally discover them, they are implanted on your floor. But you can easily get these out just by taking toothpaste and a damp rag, rubbing in a circular motion. And then once the stain is removed, you take another damp rag, wipe it away and you are done. For really stubborn or older marks, just rub the area with a fine grade steel wool and then just re-coat the area with wax. Now for burn marks, just make a paste of linseed oil and rottenstone, take that paste and rub it on the area until the stain is removed. And then take another damp cloth, wipe that away, then re-polish the area.
