Nail Polish Remover Spilt on Table

This is article is an archived discussion from 2005. Test all cleaning methods in an inconspicuous spot first.


My daughter spilled nail polish remover (acetone) on my kitchen table, and then wiped it up. My table now has a large cloudy, rough area where the remover ate through the finish on the wood table. Are there any ideas on how to fix this, or am I stuck replacing this table or having it refinished? Help, the table is only 1 1/2 years old! Angela



Ashes and Mayonnaise

Try rubbing cigarette ashes with a dab of mayonnaise on it.

Mayonnaise and an Iron Methold

Let mayonnaise sit on it for about an hour, wipe off and the put 2 or 3 paper towels folded in half on top of the mark and then run an iron over top a few times. Lift the paper towel to see if there is any change. If it is just starting then continue ironing and after about 4 strokes over the spot look under the paper towel to check progress.
