Removing Ball Point from Varnished Wood

I followed the advice about using nail varnish remover and it worked beautifully. However, using Pledge afterwards did not seem to restore the varnish as I would have hoped. I tried olive oil instead and that did the trick nicely.

It seems that nut oils have a lot of restorative qualities for wood. As an aside, try Brazil nuts for wood scratches - simply rub the nut along the scratch.

I have taken the advice of nail varnish remover and the 1 part vinegar and 3 part oil for the finish and it has worked a treat.

I used nail polish remover which I assume is the same as nail varnish remover and it totally took the wood finish off. Olive oil did NOT restore it! Ugh!

My friend's child wrote on my oak dining room table, I took Dawn dish detergent full strength, let it sit for a few minutes and wiped it off with a paper napkin. It saved my table
