Clean the entire top with mayonnaise. Put @ a teaspoonful directly on the wood and then distribute it with a soft cloth and rubbing until it no longer streaks. It's the only thing I use to really clean my wood furniture and it does a great job on kitchen cabinets.

I used the mayonnaise and I ker it soak on the table top for about 15minutes and after I wiped it off it looked the same. So mayonnaise does not work at all.

This worked really well on my table. I had seemingly impossible plastic stains from the back of some cheap placemats I had used with my kids. I was really surprised at how completely I was able to eliminate them using only mayonnaise and a magic eraser pad - who knew? I chose the mayonnaise suggestion over the others because I was afraid to use anything too harsh that would destroy the finish. I just wiped the table down with Old English when I was done & now it's as good as new!!

agreed. I just tried this and removed it with a microfiber cloth... does nothing.

Try Malathion Liquide, not sure how the tabe will take it.

How do I remove sticky residue from my new dining room table? I covered it with a clear plastic cover, and now the wood is stuck to the cover. I believe it has something to do with the wood not breathing. I have to fix this. Help.

Here is a link about what to do if plastic is burned onto the wood....some of these might work with your situation.

Hope this helps.

I have a high glass dark wooden table and I covered it with clear plastic table cover and after few months when I removed it I see annoying stains on the table that were left because of the plastic ... How do I get rid of this problem?

I got a new dark wood dining room table. I put an heirloom table runner in the center. To protect the table runner from my cat and grandkids, I put a clear plastic table cloth over the runner. When I removed the plastic several months later I found that it had left a residue on the table.

I know now that the sun on the plastic caused the problem. I tried lots of obvious things like Goo Be Gone and vinegar, WD40, etc., nothing works. Any ideas would be welcomed.

I would try rubbing alcohol. I know it will not hurt wood, but make sure it's okay with the stain on the wood. (04/30/2008)

Try toothpaste. The fine grit may be able to take off enough of the dampness white. (06/30/2010)
