Removing non-cured pigment stain is a two step process. First, rub it down with 3/0 steel wool soaked in mineral spirits. Before it dries, wipe off the resulting gunk with lots of paper towels. Applying the mineral spirits with a rag will not get through the dried top film of stain. You need the abrasiveness of the steel wool to get through this top film.

At this point, I would suggest you use the steel wool and mineral spirits followed by the wiping up of the removed stain using paper towels. Let the floor dry and see how it looks. If it looks OK, let it fully dry for another 24 hours and then apply your clear coats. Don't rush the stain drying.
