Wooden Table Damaged By Pine-Sol

My husband cleaned our nice wooden table with Pine-Sol? Now it has white streaks everywhere and looks very dull and ruined. Any ideas on how to remove these? Thanks.

This sounds crazy, but try mayonnaise. I was mgr. for a cleaning company and a client asked me if I could fix his table. Said been that way long time. It was watermarks or from heat. Rub in mayonnaise then take a clean soft cloth and clean it until the greasiness is gone. I found this tip in a magazine. Works beautifully!

Old English makes a wonderful scratch cover. I'm not sure if it comes in a light color, because I prefer the dark color. It "feeds" the wood and makes scratches disappear. I'd try it on the problem you have. I just love this product as it makes furniture look like NEW. It seems expensive, but I have had one bottle for about 30 years. It goes a long way. Be careful as it stains your clothing, carpets, etc. I let it set for awhile after I apply it so it can soak in. Then, I wipe it off.

In the future, tell your husband to use Murphy's Oil Soap which is made for washing wood. But as a rule, wood and water don't mix. lol Good luck

The streaks are probably either furniture wax disSOLved (the "SOL" in Pine-Sol), or water damage.

I would try a furniture polish, such as Old English, as mentioned by Carol. Mayo, composed mostly of oil, may also work. Good luck!
