Last year, I sanded and varnished by floorboards. at the time, it
seemed a good idea to use white flexible filler to fill in the gaps
between the boards. However, I was a bit messy with the filler and got
quite a lot of it on the floorboards. No problem as it wiped off
Stupidly, once I had covered the area with this white goo, I had and
early night as I was knackered. Next morning, the filler was very hard
to remove, so being a lazy git, I left it (white filler on white,
stained floorboards didn't look too bad and I thought it would rub off
Well, it hasn't. It's picked up dirt and looks rather nasty.And
suggestions as to what will remove it? It is too sticky to scrape off.
A broad (half inch upwards) *razor-sharp* chisel used *upside
down* at the correct angle will take it off without damaging the
wood if done carefully. It must be used in such a way that it
slides over the wood without digging in. Press gently behind the
blade to keep it in contact and produce a clean cut.
Sharpness is the key, practice somewhere first.
