How do I remove water marks from wood?
By pecoNdon from Jonesboro, GA
Rub mayo into the spot. Let it soak completely in. No Miracle Whip, use real mayo. I used this on a Civil War table I have. It does work. (06/22/2009)
I have found the best way to get rid of the white rings from heat or moisture on furniture, I have tried with no luck using mayonnaise, cigarette ashes, toothpaste, hot iron and towels. What I have found that works is the Mr. Clean Magic eraser. Dampen the eraser rub gently with the grain of the wood and then polishing as usual.
I happen to like Armor All as a furniture polish, if it's not a bad white mark the magic eraser will removed it completely, if it solid white you may have to do it several times. It may leave a bit of a ghost, but that's still better than having a big white mark.
This was not a bad 1, you can see on the right it's gone. Now that I know how to fix them nobody's making them.
