I dropped full bottle virgin olive oil on ceramic white kitchen tiles. I wiped up with a paper towel and used a steam mop to wash the floor, but that actually spread the remaining oil all over the tiles.

I have since mopped with very hot water and floor cleaner several times, but oil is still visible on the tiles. The tiles are high gloss.

How can I remove the oil completely so I don't see it?
