How to remove water stains from wood flooring

  1. First things first, remove all the dirt and dust from the area. If the water stain is light, then you’re in luck.
  2. Use mineral oil (or a common household item such as butter or petroleum jelly) and a cloth to rub the water stain out of the wood. Rub the cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Leave it overnight.
  3. The next day, remove the remaining oil with a cloth.
  4. If the water stain is still present, you’ll have to use a mineral spirit like paint thinner. 
  5. Repeat the mineral oil process using the mineral spirit, but do not leave overnight. After a few minutes, dry the area with a clean cloth.
  6. If the stain is still present, you may have a darker water stain than you originally thought. In this case, it’s best to consult a professional. You’ll likely need to sand the area and use harsh chemicals.
