Tar from Hard Floors

“I just found what I think are tar marks all over my new “5 month old” wood floor. I believe they were made from the bottom of my child’s cast (broken foot). She must have tracked them in from outside. They are all over……..Please, any advice would be great.”

Tar is easily removed with a general- purpose solvent (even rubbing alcohol if you want to save the trip to the hardware store). Be sure to test a small area first to be sure no damage will occur.

Using a cleaning towel or cotton ball, place some solvent on the towel and wipe.

There are citrus based cleaners which are not as harsh as solvents which can also do an effective job, its also worth it to try a magic eraser I have seen it remove some pretty bad stains will no ill effects.
