oxyclean solution spilled on kentucky blue rock, oh my!

An approximately 10 parts water to 1 part oxyclean that was used on some upholstered furniture on the deck was subsequently spilled on our heated stone floors of 3/4" Kentucky blue rock (a slate I would guess?) in the kitchen near the stove. It was immediately cleaned up with soap and water but still there are spots that are clearly lighter than adjacent areas. One friend suggested that since other slabs of stone other than the kitchen are clearly lighter in color along with about 2" under the toe kickboard area under our cabinets, perhaps the oxyclean solution merely gave a deep clean to an area of stone deeply in need considering we cook in there and walk around, let dogs in, etc. So, do I throw some bacon grease down and saw dust and walk around barefoot for a year and let it get back to the same color or try and do some testing with oxyclean and "strip" the whole kitchen area and reseal (which hasn't been done since we moved in 4 years ago). Lots of threads on oxyclean but could not find an oxyclean created stain so my apologies if this has already been addressed.

Oxyclean is nothing more than hydrogen peroxide. I doubt it would leave a stain. It sounds like the stone has been cleaned with it. You can clean the entire floor or try a color enhancer on the spot to darken it.

Agree that you should try color enhancer. The stain might not be remove even using oxyclean so better try to cheat it. But if you still want to try oxyclean better do I might be wrong on what I said.
