I had the same problem and someone told me to use a warm iron over a linen tea towel and iron in a circular motion checking often to see if the stains were still there. I was leery but it worked!! Good Luck!

I just saw a video where you use steam and a hot iron with a white towel. Guess what what started out as small spots are now big iron size spots. Made a small problem into a huge ugly table my advice don't do it

Use some dark furniture polish known as Old English and go over the surface, that should do the trick.

Be very careful when using this technique. Remember that the heat stains are cause from trapped moisture and steaming them is ADDING moisture. I tried this on a table with a good finish and it worked fine. I then tried it on a table top with an old finish and it was a disaster ended up refinishing the tabletop.

Using a warm iron over a white tee shirt removed the white stain from the table like magic. Thanks for the tip.

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.
