Try rubbing the stain gently with a dab of mayonnaise. If that doesn't work, scrub it very gently with white toothpaste. There also are some crayon-type products in houseware stores that might match the finish for disguising the damage. Good luck!

Water stains can usually be removed if the table/wood had a good finish.
Methods to try:
1.) Hairdryer: hairdryer set on low; place over stain and move heat around area to dry up the moisture; dry with soft cloth.
2.) Mayonnaise or white toothpaste (not gel) or petroleum jelly (Vaseline). Place a dab of one product on a clean cloth and rub the spot until you feel warmth as warmth is what draws the white mark out.


Keep rubbing and checking to see how it's doing. Clean all remains away with another clean cloth. Try one and if that doesn't work try the next.
3.) Iron: I have never tried this method but read about it so you might want to give it a try. The complete procedure is lengthy so I'm going to give you a link that explains this method thoroughly.

Be sure to think about applying wax or some sort of protective cover after you remove the stains.

Heat up the water using an Iron or a hairdryer over a piece of cloth to absorb it.
