Using Instant Coffee to Color Wood Scratches

For scratches on wooden tables, picture frames or anything wooden, take a teaspoon of instant coffee, add a couple of drops of hot water (just enough to make a thick paste). Take a clean cloth, dip into mixture and rub into scratch. Let dry. If it's not dark enough, repeat until you get right wood color. If it's too dark use a wet cloth and wipe until you get the right color. If you get excess somewhere you don't want it, just wipe with wet cloth. You'll be amazed at how easy this is. It only takes a few minutes and costs next to nothing.
