Advise needed

#1
I have recently done some work fork a customer that had an untreated oak staircase which I covered to try and avoid any splashes but unfortunatly there was a couple of bits that got through. It has left a black mark and was wandering what the best way to get rid of it. Any help and helpful advise would be much appreciated.

Yes if it’s untreated a light sand with a fine paper should remove it. The Multi-Finish burns the wood but a light sand should do the trick

you need a thick skin and a sense of humour on here pal otherwise you'll get destroyed
on a more serious note: my advice regarding the staircase is set fire to it to match the black marks up
Why . Bit extreme . Just brush it all down with water to match

Very light sandpaper does the job if ther small marks
