Hardwood floors - stain left on too long!
I am refinishing the hardwood floors in my living room. They were sanded with an orbital sander yesterday and stain was applied but the stain was mistakenly left on overnight, without being wiped off. I kind of figured something was wrong when I got up this morning and the floors were sticky and still wet in most areas.
What are my options now??

Welcome kmm110, to the best darn DIY'r site on the web.

Wipe it down with mineral spirits, keep changing the you will need lots of them......don't feel bad you are not alone, this is about the 3rd post I have read like this in the last month. Unfortunately if you have blotches or dark spots once its wiped down you will have to resand.
