How do I remove a water mark from an oak table?

I know it sounds strange, but try taking a small dab of mayonnaise on a soft cloth and rub it in. I used this on my sewing machine cabinet that had a water ring from a glass or soda bottle. It was there for a long time as it was a second hand machine. It worked for awhile and months later I used the mayo trick again. Still looks almost good as new.

P.S. This mayo trick works of house plants leaves too, cleans and gives them a nice shine. Do not use it on African Violets.

I over watered a plant for some time and have a 6 inch water stain imbedded in my oak table. What's the best way to remove?

Did you see all the other posts on the same issue? Lots of good ideas. Using toothpaste (not gel) mixed with baking soda sounds like it might work, or maybe the magic eraser. Both should be quite abrasive and then try the mayo or a furniture oil/cleaner like Old English.

John, did you have any luck. I have the same problem tried the mayo thing - no luck. Tried the salt and olive oil thing - no luck, Tried the toothpaste - no luck. There must be something that works.

I have read that an iron on the lowest setting placed on layers of cotton eg pillowcase folded and left for hours gradually dries out the water. The longer t takes the better. Obviously this has potential risk if you get the heat too high.

I did try to remove the white ring made by a glass of ice water left overnight on my new oak table with mayo and baking soda paste. It turned out darker. Then I tried the white vinegar with olive oil still and it still hasn't improved. Please help

The best solution I have found for this problem is a product named "Liquid Gold", you'll find it right where you find furniture sprays like Pledge.

Spray Liquid Gold on the stain, let sit overnight or for a few hours, then wipe away.
