How to remove stains from food

Spills and stains are an inevitable part of life. Whether it's a cup of coffee or a bowl of soup, spills can be frustrating and overwhelming. However, it's important to remember that spills don't have to ruin your floor. With a few steps, you can clean up the mess and move on with your day.

The first step in dealing with a spill is to act quickly. The longer you wait, the more effort you have to put in to remove the stain. 

If it's a spill, grab a cloth or paper towel and start blotting up the excess liquid.   If it’s anything other than water that spilled, wet a cloth or paper towel with water and wipe up any remaining spill so you don’t end up with a sticky residue or stain.  Once you’ve cleaned up the spill, spray WOCA Natural Soap and wipe or mop the affected area.  

If you discover a set in or old stain from food, here are your options:

Option 1- Cleaning with WOCA Natural Soap every other week.  Natural Soap is a conditioning cleaner with plant fats.  With regular cleaning, the fats in this soap will settle into the stain and fade it with time.  

Option 2- If you have a stubborn stain from oil, wine, tea, coffee or blood, try WOCA Stain Remover.  This is a powerful stain remover that should remove the stain, but it will remove the oil color and finish as well, so following up with touch up application of WOCA oil is required to restore color and the protective finish. Results vary.

If you have a prefinished oiled floor, please contact the manufacturer for their recommended steps to remove stains.

When a floor receives a machine-applied maintenance coat of WOCA oil, most stains will be removed by the cleaning strength of WOCA Intensive Wood Cleaner, the application of oil, the polishing pad, and the weight, heat, and motion of the machine.
