I did this with molasses and had to run, when I got home I realized my mistake. I let it too long. I was told to use Salt. I had to use a lot but it make it loose enough to wipe up with towels. Then I put hot water towels on the remainder. It wiped up with lots of force but it was a LONG, hard exercise.
UPDATE: forgot to mention when I finished with the major mess part, that Dish Soap was the best choice in cleaning solutions. As Marda states BLEACH wont do anything but make it stink and hurt your hands.
