Finished word (varnished, stained and waxed, etc.) should resist stains well if the wood finish is kept up. Unfinished wood is porous and subject to staining. Anything with color or pigmentation can be "transported" into the grains of the wood. Solvents push whatever it is deeper, and will cause that colorant to "wick up" to the surface as they dry out.
