My daughter just spilled a bottle of nail polish remover on my hardwood table. It left huge white marks plus spill droplets all over it. (The bottle totally poured out before she could grab it). I applied mayonnaise and ashes for an hour, wiped and removed and then ironed. The end result? I thought I'd have to have the entire surface refinished but you can hardly tell anything ever happened anymore! A little oïl on there and it'll be completely gone. Thank you so much!

The tip for the iron and white cloth for the nail varnish remover spillage worked wonderfully. Was sceptical at first as the table had a big white stain from the remover but it lifted it off completly. Just needed a coat of oil afterwards. Brilliant,

The iron worked for me too! Oak table with lacquer finish. The remover stain was a white colour and did not appear to have sunk too deep as the surface was still smooth. I used petroleum jelly first then wiped away after a few hours - this actually made a very slight improvement on it's own (you could try mayonnaise and ashes too - that would have been my next option - left overnight).

Then I ironed over a cotton hand towel a few strokes at a time being very cautious and patient. I checked the table after each few strokes and wiped softly with the grain. There was a visible difference after the first pass, and now you can hardly see it at all! I finished off with some oil. I too was amazed and relieved that it worked, it's worth a try but definitely use with caution I would say, don't let it get too hot, slow and steady.

Does the white towel need to be wet or the iron setting on steam? And do I need to do the petroleum jelly first? I spilled naill polish remover yesterday. Smh

I read the advice given on this page, and it totally works! Mayonnaise for an hour, I didn't have cigarette ashes because I don't smoke. So I just burned some matches, and rubbed those on it. Put the paper towels on and ironed it for a minute. Stain totally gone. My floor isn't even wood, it's some type of laminate!

I spilled nail vanish remover on 2 of my nest of tables, did not realise I had until the following day, gutted! Looked at tips to remove, I was very sceptical, imagined the person who said to use mayonnaise, ash and then iron, laughing at people trying this, what, madness, but I tried it. I was completely amazed with the result, it absolutely works, patient is the key. Thank you so much whoever you are, who would ever have thought of using those things on polished tables, amazing.

Spilled quite a lot of "extra strength" nail polish remover, Sally Hanssen, on Solid Walnut Wood Dining Table Top. It left a Large White Wash Milky Stain... 50 cm x 50 cm.Thought that was it! Looked up tips on this forum and tried the damp bath towel (doubleled up) and Ironsteam, ironing the bath towel in circular motions and steaming constantly on damp towel at same time!

Checking constantly to see what was happening. Worked a treat. "All" of the white wash lifted out, just like magic, and table top is back to Walnut Colour and looking great! I was very sceptical, but now very thankful for the great tips from people on this forum! Thanks so much!

Do not do this! It just strips the varnish off altogether and makes it worse!!!!

Try a thinner cloth unless it's right down to the wood.

It worked! Not 100% restored but 95% better! It's hazy now that's all :)
At first it didn't work so I tried a thinner cloth on the highest setting. It took a while but it worked & I'm very happy it saved my table. Thank you!!!
