Anyone know how to remove long-dried Tru-Oil from an uneven tile surface. Asking for a friend...
You can layer Tru Oil to even surfaces out. Wet sanding at higher increments helps the process. Go slowly allowing for each coat to cure, before proceeding to the next. Stop when you get the desired look
Goof Off is what I would try.
Goof-off won't work, AFAIK. Chemical stripper will, heat might.
Try mineral spirits and a toothbrush. If that fails (depends how long the oil finish has been on) then use lacquer thinner and a toothbrush. It's always best to try the least aggressive solvent (mineral spirits) before moving up to a more aggressive solvent. If the toothbrush and solvent doesn't do it, then use the solvent and a green scotchbrite pad. Stay away from the grout or mask it off.
Glazed tile or porous tile?
O believe it is glazed.
Try lighter fluid.
Denatured alcohol "may" work. I've used it to remove small amounts of Tung Oil from my tiled floor with success.
