Newsprint (newspaper) on Wood Furniture

Apparently a slightly damp news paper was left on my wood night stand. I now find I have news print on the wood. Any ideas for removing this?

You could try an oil and vinegar polish mix. Use an old jam jar or spray bottle may work, just shake well to mix. Half and half olive (or veg) oil (this nourishes and shines) and white vinegar (which cleans the wood and should bring up the ink).

I've used it on my wood framed sofa. Just use a dusting rag or bit of old sheet. You would think the oil would leave the wood greasy, but the vinegar stops that.

Let me know if you try it and it works for you.
