I tried the iron and steam treatment to remove white marks on my table and I don't know what happen it failed, and only left more bigger white marks. Help! Has anyone any ideas?

The white marks are likely from water, so therefore, more white marks mean too much steam. Try another method. I know that my mother removed some water stains from a wooden tray for me, but unfortunately, I don't know what she did. Try googling for info.

I have had good luck masking dings on wood by rubbing a walnut on the surface and then buffing a bit. I tried this once on a water mark (with the white ring) and it worked pretty well. Of course, if you are talking about an antique or something else of potentially high value, I really cannot say that this would be a good answer... There may be a more suitable solution? Best of luck! :)
I bought a used cherry bureau with some areas of small splatter like marks on it. The finish is still shiny and bright; it almost looks like the spots are under the gloss. Any ideas on how to remedy this? I would hate to ruin the finish by using something to pumice it.

Don't get the marks in the first place. Make yourself some mug rugs from quilting or a few layers of denim. The little woven pot holder thingies that little kids make will do it.
How do you treat heat marks on stained wooden table?

This is what I did once; think I read it somewhere. I sanded very lightly with fine grade sandpaper then used Old English Scratch Cover. Worked. I think I tried mayonnaise first and it didn't work.

Combine vinegar and olive oil in equal parts to remove white spots left from moisture on wood. Apply with a clean soft cloth and work the vinegar/olive oil mixture into the wood in the direction of the grain to erase the white water spots. Good luck!
I used steam on a wood table to take out water marks. It worked wonderful but now I have stains from the steam. I've tried mayonnaise, toothpaste, baking soda, Old English, and wax. Any answers?

Steam iron marks on teak dining table were removed by laying a white t-shirt doubled over on the marks and then using the steam iron over the area using the steam function! I know it doesn't make sense but it worked. I don't know how or why!
How do I remove white heat stains from polished wood?

Cannot believe how well the iron trick worked. I started off with a cool iron over a piece of cloth and worked up in heat going in circular motions until it went away, suppose that was the cowards way. Top tip, saved me a fortune as I was going to call out a french polisher.

How do I get white heat rings out of furniture?
By Wendyann from Albion Park, NSW Australia
I happen to like Armor All as a furniture polish, if it's not a bad white mark the Magic Eraser will removed it completely, if it solid white you may have to do it several times. It may leave a bit of a ghost, but that's still better than having a big white mark.
This was not a bad one, you can see on the right it's gone. Now that I know how to fix them nobody's making them. (06/09/2009)
