Varnish Damaged by Spilled Perfume

The dressing table has a gloss vanish finish. I noticed some alcohol from a perfume bottle has leaked. I've tried to clean with a paper towel and all purpose cleaner. The spill has removed the vanish finish and the stain and now I can see bare wood in a section. Any tips of how I can fix at home, this furniture is part of a rental property and is not mine. Please help!

The whole top has to be refinished. It is too big an area to spot finish. Remove the varnish and restain

I would sand down the top layer and stain the wood again.

it will cost more in time and money to fix it rather than just pay for it and cover it with paint or fabric

I have done the same thing. Twice. Take a drawer out and take the drawer to Lowe's and match the stain and varnish or clear coat. Sand it and apply. I got lucky and was able to get a perfect match so I only had to redo the damaged area. But , you make have to do the entire dresser top.
