i had some mold on my wood countertop because its been so humid lately. Ive used a cleaning product containing bleach. It took some of the mold out but not all of it. I woke up this morning with my countertop looking like this!!! Can it be sanded down & refinished ? or its totally ruined now, i am freaking out!!!
Relax. You have not permanently ruined it. It can be sanded clean and uniform again. You might try some mineral oil on a bit of the bleached area first, just to see if the color returns?
Depending on how you use it (if more like a piece of furniture, one could varnish with a solvent based poly) or if you like to use it for food prep/chopping, oiled with butcher block oil (mineral oil)
thanks for the reply, i will try the mineral oil first and if that doesn't work i will seek some professional help, thanks again
im just happy that its not permanently ruined
I thought I had ruined my butcher block kitchen cart by putting a hot pan on it that scorched the top. There was also a burn mark on the side from something else. My carpenter sanded it and applied mineral oil. You can't tell that anything had ever happened. I was afraid that the surface would be slightly uneven, but no. It's perfect.
