We are in the process of finishing a cabin we purchased. Unfortunately the
pine wood flooring is already installed. Since we are WAY down a private
road (two track) we do not have electric yet. So while working there we are
using a generator. We have done well placing plastic under it when we take
it in from outside to store while we aren't there. But we recently had a
roof and siding put on and the builder who did the work spilled gasoline
from it on the unfinished pine flooring. And he walked in it. So I have
several large spots in the bedroom and foot prints in the living room. Our
plan is to eventually put a clear finish on it. Is there anything that will
remove the gas stains on the bare wood?
Get a few pieces of wood flooring and stain it with the gasoline. Then
you can try a few solvents or finishes to determine which one (if any)
will remove/cover the stain. Try mineral spirits, turpentine,
