I have white ghosting on the upper cabinet door from a kettle boiling too close to the wood. I tried the hairdryer method, and the ash and mayo, but nothing has worked. Anybody have the same issue and can comment from experience regarding the same issue please? There are multiple suggestions on here, but I am looking for someone who had success with the same issue. Thank you.
I have experienced the same problem, but I used lemon oil and it restored my cabinet back to its natural state. I have not had any further problem with it and it has now been several months. Hope this will help your situation also.
I have dark cabinets just like in the picture on the site. I was canning tomatoes and when I lifted the lid I ended up with very bad white steam marks on my cupboards. I almost cried. I've heard that coconut oil works wonders so I rubbed it all over the stain.
So how long does it take to go away? Just wondering. Becuse I was an idiot and set down my tv dinner on my moms coffee table and had made that mark.
Coconut oil works!
The dark wood kitchen cabinet front above the microwave has an area that has turned white. What caused this? Steam? How do I clean it?

I only have a guess - steam, but didn't want you to think you were being ignored. Wish I could help...maybe Murphy's Oil Soap?

How do I remove steam stains created by a boiling kettle on solid oak kitchen cabinets. I've tried toothpaste, mayo, and rubbing alcohol.
