Water Rings on Furniture

Category Furniture

I have an older pine table that is stained but not sealed. I have kept it oiled with lemon oil in our dry Colorado climate. I have a water ring that I cannot remove all the way. What can I take it off with? It is a new ring.

Help in the Rockies please...

mayonaise alone or mixed with cigarette ashes works well.

I read a tip about this once in a magazine. While visiting a friend's house, I stupidly place a cold drink on her cherrywood coffee table. It immediately left a ring. I ran to her bathroom, brought out the toothpaste. Using a damp, soft, clean cloth I added a pea sized amount of toothpaste to the cloth and gently rubbed the "ring". It worked! And boy, was I glad it did!

I wanted to know how well this worked on older "rings", so I tried it on my own coffee table. The older rings were very stubborn, but I was able to removed them.

I don't know what it is about the paste, but it works. By the way, the toothpaste I used was a simple white Colgate brand.

Hope this helps!

Get a "Krazy Kloth" from Bed Bath & Beyond. This is what I used for my very old dining room table that was marred all over by stubborn white spots. It's loaded with some sort of oil that reconditions the wood. It's not a miracle, but it worked better than I could have imagined! Krazy Kloth sells for about 5 bucks and you can reuse it again and again.

We own a Bed and Breakfast. Although we provide coasters for our end tables and dressers in the rooms, somehow people manage to put water glasses on them. I found on the satin finish that toothpaste works best and on the high gloss finish the mayonaise or salad oil works best. The toothpaste on the high gloss finish leaves a dull ring.
