in attempts to remove canola oil stains from leaving leaking bottles on the table, I made a solution of water vinegar and baking soda. Unfortunately now, the area I was scrubbing is white from the scrubbing (which I did with a microfiber cloth).

I’m wondering if there are any solutions to this or if I will need to have the table refinished.

The table is a cb2: see here Thanks for any help! enter image description here

    It looks to me like that stripped the finish, it’s possible it is baking soda residue I would try warm water with the microfiber and work it with the grain. Use enough water to dilute any soda. If it looks darker repeat a few times. If the soda an abrasive or the vinegar a week acid or the combination took the surface finish off it will need to be refinished or touched up. I would try several cycles with warm water and see. – Ed Beal Sep 3 '20 at 3:28
