Didn't have any mayonnaise, so thought I'd try some "Miracle" Whip just for grins. It worked! And we also learned a valuable lesson, keep the Purell high on the shelf, away from the grandkids.
try mayonaise. Let stand a short while then wipe off with a clean cloth. It worked on a water stain for me.
it certainly sounds like something, probably the alcohol in the purell removed the stain from the wood. You can purchase pens of wood stain at paint stores that are meant to be used to correct such problems,if it is solid wood not plastic veneer over fiberboard. Also if you can match the color, try permanent marker and wax used for wood, but the stain touchup marker pen would be better, I think.
Try infusing some tea bags in a bowl of hot water- til it's as close to the colour of the table as possible- allow to cool. Then with a cloth-dip into the tea solution and rub over the mark. It MAY blend the mark in with the rest of the table that way.
If you are unsure to begin with try a test piece under the table where no one can see.
I am told this is a good way to cover up stains on wood.
Try rubbing the spot with white toothpaste. Let set for about 20 minutes, then buff with a soft cloth. This method has worked to remove white cloudy spots from my dining room table caused by sitting a hot plate directly on the table. It can't hurt.
Sounds like the alcohol in the purell ate into the finish thats on the wood. The only solution that I know of is to sand down and refinish.
