Tung oil for hardwood floor.

Lucia asked 9 years ago

I had used a 100% tung oil on to a old floor. All I did was water clean the floor and put on the tung oil with a painting brush and allow it to dry for 6 hours.

But I have a hard time to wipe off the extra oil completely, I can feel the oil when I walk on the floor. How can I repair this problem?

You need to wipe down your floor with mineral spirits and cloths to remove the extra unabsorbed Tung oil. This will be very smelly, make sure to ventilate during and after wiping everything down. Also, dispose the rags into a metal bucket with water.
