I stained our hardwood floors one week ago and have let it dry but unfortunately all of it wasn't absorbed. I didn't notice the excess until a few days after I let it dry, and it's quite noticeable:
The wood is roughly 90 years old. I sanded it using 20, then 36, then 80 grit and then stained it. It is not crazy thick wood so it's not able to absorb too much.
My question: Should I just hand sand using 180/200 grit to get the excess stain off and then LIGHTLY re-stain areas that may look lighter than they should? Or should I just poly it?
I just don't think I can afford to re-sand everything again given the wood's thickness, and I'm ok with some areas that don't look perfect given the old is so old.
