How to clean unfinished plywood floor.

How to clean unfinished plywood floor. I want to mop and freshen the bare plywood floor in our unfinished attic. I've already swept and vacuumed it. The floor is not filthy, but there was rodent activity. I'd like to use a solution that sanitizes, if possible. But my priority is not to damage the wood. There is an oily patch left by the former owners. Smells like they spilled a bottle of lotion. I'm inclined to just mop over that patch and not try to remove the spot. We use the attic for our home gym -- it's not a place where we bring company. My bottles of Murphy's Oil Soap and Simple Green say "do not use on unfinished wood". Any recommendations for a cleaning solution?

Wood and water don't mix?

We've got a wooden shelf in the bathroom in our (rented) apartment. We've been here two years now and it's gone very pale, and is stained a funny colour where water has landed on it. What should we do to return it to its former glory? (pretty much cleaning/DIY noobs, to be honest...)

Olive Oil vs. Unfinished Red oak floor

I spilled olive oil on our new red oak hardwood floor, the day before the contractors are coming to sand, stain and finish it (a small bottle fell off the shelf and the top popped off) . How screwed are we? [more inside]
