I have a nice wood cocktail table. It is a very lightly stained wood with no finish on it. It is very rustic. My nephew found a black ball point pen and wrote on it. We have only had it about 2 months. Can someone suggest how to get the marks off without damaging the wood? It is only a surface mark. The pen did not indent the wood. Thanks!

If you have access to ethanol, make a 95% solution (95 parts ethanol to 5 parts water) and apply to a clean rag or piece of gauze. Rub onto stain. Since there is no finish on the table, it should not cause it any harm. If you do not have ethanol, you could try applying some hairspray to the rag before rubbing it onto the stain. Best of luck!
