Stained hardwood floor - good cleaning agent?

The bathrooms in my flat were just renovated. For a 2.5 week period we were provided with a small portable toilet. Whatever chemical that accompanied it was blueish-green, and has left a nice stain on my hardwood floor.

I've tried to remove it with some cleaning products, with minimal success.

Any advice on a good cleaning agent to lift a stubborn stain?

That toilet liquid is a vicious chemical.

Probably the easiest and quickest is to "sand paper" the area, back to the bare wood, and repaint with stain and varnish.

Ask your landlord for advice.
