help... ink from a supermarket bag transferred to wooden surface in kitchen

Hi. I'm house-sitting for a friend who is overseas.
The house cleaner came the other day and wiped down a wood surface in the kitchen with a type of oil for cleaning and protecting wood. Then she placed a plastic bag (the supermarket type) on top of the wood surface, apparently while it was still wet.
Later, when I removed the plastic bag - it left an imprint on the wood. The ink from the supermarket logo that was printed on the bag somehow transferred onto the wood.
It doesn't seem to rub off easily just using some paper towel or cloth. I haven't tried using any detergents because I don't know much about how to deal with wood.
Can someone please give me some tips as to how I might remove these stains?
Although it wasn't my fault, I feel bad about leaving it that way for my friend when she returns.

using a detergent, preferably mild might help you. apply a little amount and leave it for a couple of minutes, then wipe it out. DO not use any harsh detergent as it may dry the wood.
