Paper Plates Left Rings on Dining Table?

I used paper plates with hot food on my dining room wood table. The plates stuck to the table and left rings that would not wash off. How can I clean this table and remove these rings?

This is a white heat stain. You can remove it by rubbing mayonnaise on the stain, waiting an hour, and wiping it off.

I had hot paper plates left on my pine table and after consulting a wood refinisher he told me to get some ashes from a wood stove or charcoal ash and make a paste with lemon juice from a real lemon. Rub a small amount over the white heat stain with a white t-shirt material cloth and it disappeared! I had six of these stains and was very happy with the advise.

Rub in a paste of salt and olive oil, allow to sit for up to an hour. Wipe off.

Most suggestions from restore books recommend the mayonnaise method but sometimes it will not work do to the type of wood or finish of the table. Also, everything may not work the same on lighter woods.

Here are some suggestions from my daughter's stash of "help" folders:

Mix 50/50 toothpaste and baking soda, rub in. Do not use gel toothpaste for this.
Rub in a paste of salt and olive oil, allow to sit for up to an hour. Wipe off.
Rub in mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip) and wipe off after an hour.
Mix 50/50 vinegar and olive oil and rub into the watermark.
Try straight toothpaste (non-gel). Rub in with the grain then wipe off.
Make a paste with baking soda and a few drops of water. Rub in then wipe off. You can also try salt instead of baking soda.
Rub some Vaseline (or other petroleum jelly) into the watermark and leave overnight. Wipe off in the morning.
