Removing White Ring Marks from Painted Furniture

How do I remove white water marks from furniture that is painted? This furniture has been painted to look antique with several colors of paint. It cannot just be painted over.

I just saw this on the Dr. Oz show, I haven't tried it myself. Take a small cup of ashes from the fireplace or grill, mix in just enough water to make a paste, and use a toothbrush to work it into the stain. Brush it back and forth with the grain until the stain is gone, then polish the wood with bottled polish (not a spray). I hope this helps!

I have a black painted table, with white rings. How do I get rid of them? I tried toothpaste and vinegar, with no results. Thanks.

You can buy some white ring remover in the paint department of any hardware store. Made by Formbys. You can also use Vaseline petroleum and some cigarette ashes. Just rub into the ring, let set then wipe.

Why don't you try to use a black marker to fill in the white ring?

Try painting the same color paint over the stain. (08/30/2010)
