Removing Stuck on Flannel from Dining Table

A lined/plastic table cloth back is stuck to an antique table. I don't want to re-finish it. I just want to take off the fuzzy stuff left behind. Warm water did not work.

I have cleaned an antique chair that had years of build up on the arms from dirt and oils. I sprayed a pure bees wax polish on it and let it set for about 1 minutes. I sprayed it really heavy. Then wiped and wiped with a soft cloth. It was amazing. Good luck.

I had the same problem and tried many things including "goo gone", spray cleaners, warm water. Nothing really did the trick. The flannel is gone but there is still a white cast of fuzz on my dining room table. Good luck.

Someone above just said bees wax polish worked.

Did you get an answer that worked for removing the white cotton left on your table. I have the same problem and can not find anything to remove it. I need help!

I did the same thing with a flannel backed table cloth

. It is a VERY old table and I want to do as little damage (other than what I have all ready done) as possible to remove the fuzz. I tried soaking it with Old English but that has not worked.

I soaked my table with Lysol cleaning spray and let it sit for a while. Then I scraped it with a metal spatula. Warning. ... you need patience for this!

I have tried Murphy;s oil soap but never WD40 seems to me

that. would ruin the finish

wd-40 did not help take cotton off a table.

I tried everything! Then I had the idea to try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser! Bingo!!! Takes some "Elbow Grease" but there are no chemicals to harm the wood!!
