A Plastic Bag Stained My Wood Table

While having our kitchen remodeled, we put several items on the wood dining room table. A plastic bag left a ink stain. I would appreciate any help with a chemical free way to remove it. Thanks.

Try some non-gel toothpaste. (First try this on a place you can't see) You can follow with mayonaise to re-add moisture, make sure it's not the non-fat kind.

I've also heard you can use mineral oil, a soft rag and a blow dryer. Put a bit of mineral or baby oil on wood, and heat up the oil a bit with the blow dryer, rub the soft cloth with some elbow grease and just alternate rubbing with heating. (I have never tried this, I'm sure it would depend on you particular wood finish)

---> For stains on NON-WOOD surfaces, use lemon juice mixed with cream of tarter.

I have always heard of the ashes mixture By Anna

but the differnce is use mayonaise to make the paste .

Also I wondered if a magic eraser would do any good.

Ink as a laundry stain is removed with hairspray - but I would probably rather not want to use it on a wood table.

Have you tried plain baking soda on a soft cloth ?

Let us know what finally works !

I had a bread bag on my table (wood) and the plastic marked the table, do you have any clue of how I can remove it?

Mix cigarette, or cigar, ashes with cooking oil to make a paste. GENTLY massage the area with mixture, using a soft cloth, and working in circles. Once the mark is gone, wipe down area with a clean, soapy cloth. Rinse well and dry thoroughly. After it's dry, apply furniture polish to entire table. (06/06/2006)
