In sanding down our 90 yrs old hard wood floors to bare wood using 24 grit as it had thick shiny varnish, we noticed the wood remained amber with orangy tint and some spots look more saturated than others like oil slicks. We can not sand any more as we fear wearing down the wood too much. It seems like a ton of oil based sealer was used at one point and really penetrated deeply. Also a poor un even application

How can I nuetrilize the orangy tint without using stain? Will the wood accept bleach with the oil pile up it has? Is there a way to remove oil sealers or to even out the oil blotches?

My hope is to finish with WB pu after I apply a clear dewaxed shellac as I love the raw wood scandi look but I can't live with this orangy tint really need help.
