Large Water Spot on a Maple Coffee Table

I'm not sure if this is a cleaning request or not but I have a solid maple coffee table that I, unfortunately, put a plant on. Over a period of time after watering it I have an enormous water spot on my table. Does anyone know I can clean this without having to refinish it?

Thanks,
Orva from Magigone

Rub vaseline on the spot and let it sit until the spot is gone. It may take 2 or 3 days, maybe longer but the spot will disappear. I've even done this on old spots and it still went back to the original finish.

I would like to thank Lori for the tip on my coffee table. I will try that today. Thanks

Ashes in mayonnaise, rub in well. May have to repeat, but it works, believe it or not.

This is weird but I remember my Aunt doing it and it really worked. She would make a paste from used cigarette ashes and fresh water. She would rub the paste in a circular motion on the water mark and it would disappear! Try it, it works. Good luck. ddkmk1
