Removing White Stains from a Wood Table

I've been using an iron to remove them like some people are suggesting. I was wowed by this solution. This solution works temporarily. The white stains keep coming back! I've used plastic plates and cups. All my plates are white, I was wondering if this is reason why?

I tried the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and I can't believe it really worked! The white stain is gone.

Thanks for the tip! I thought I ruined a sofa table after I used it to iron. Even tho I had thick towels, it got multiple white burn marks from the iron.

I used a magic eraser, then rubbed a generous coat of lemon oil furniture polish. It looks like new!

I had huge places on my dining room table from my daughter ironing on the table with just a towel. MAGIC ERASER was the answer. I tried the hair dryer and the iron trick with a thicker towel....then got out the Magic Eraser and used that. Yet to add the lemon oil, but white area (and it was 2 large areas) are gone.

Clean eraser sponge. That got rid of it completely. Then I finished it off with some olive oil. Thanks for the tip about the Eraser sponge.

Thank you for suggesting using a Magic Eraser. I'd tried toothpaste + baking soda, mayonnaise + baking soda, and a hairdryer and nothing had worked for me, but scrubbing with a Magic Eraser did the trick!

I tried the iron and I have to say it took a good part of the mark away. I began to get discouraged so , I came back here to read some more of your suggestions. I used the magic eraser and was pleasantly surprised. Thank you everyone for your suggestions.

I also used the magic eraser and it worked wonders. You just have to be patient and it will eventually go away

I too tried the steam iron on cotton trick, and it did work to some degree, but it left the surface of the table where the stain was very slightly rough to the touch. With a flash of inspiration I decided to try rubbing the area with a little drop of metal polish such as Brasso. This worked a treat, and as I progressed across the effected area, the white stain gradually disappeared. A final rub with a good quality wax polish and I defy anyone to tell me where the stain had been. Job done to my wife's total satisfaction!
