Spot sanding water marks off waxed floor

Q: Hi. I’ve attempted to spot sand some water marks off the floor. Have retreated the areas with same wax as rest of floor, but they appear darker now. Do you know what I’ve done wrong?

A: If this is stained wood or tinted wax perhaps you used too coarse of an abrasive, thereby opening the surface of the wood more than the surrounding area. I think I would have used some fine steel wool and a tiny bit of mineral spirits.
