Using an Iron to Remove White Marks from Wood

Using an iron with old shirt idea worked 100% for a bad one that I had. Thanks for the tip. The key is not to use too much heat as I tried that once before and made the problem worse. Be patient and then use olive oil after to condition the wood.

Great trick. I've done the mayo and ashes thing. Not even close to same results

Worked great on a hot liquid stain. 3-5 seconds using a white pillow case and wiped immediately. Repeat if needed. Then light vegetable or furniture oil. We didn't have olive or furniture oil handy, so sprayed it lightly with Pam for temporary protection. Don't push the button on an auto steam iron. You want steam under the iron, not the jet.

I had a small white circle from a glass - tried the iron but made the problem worse because I hit the steam button and then I had an entire white iron stain, LOL - luckily, tho I worked on it for an entire hour working on small patches and now I am about to put olive oil on it to preserve it. I was very surprised that it worked! Thank Goodness!

This worked like a charm for me. My table was an antique mahogany and I was devastated when i saw the cloudy spots.

Since ironing caused the problem on my red cherry triple dresser, I was gunshy to use that method to fix the damage (the surface had been covered with a flat of wood covered with a towel, still don't know how this happened). Another fix caught my attention. I cracked open a walnut and rubbed with the grain, a total of maybe six minutes, finishing with old cotton undies. Beautiful!! And, no risk of further damage.

So my problem was trying to match a butt stock from to the grip stock on a post 30-30 Winchester the wood on the stock a nice grained wood the hand grip a Chinese produced piece of junk. I wanted a medium walnut look. After sanding and smoothing the dents and dings or of both pieces, the hand grip was not even close.

So I resanded and went and got dark walnut stain. Still 3-4 shades light. Here is the fix soak for 2hours wrapped in foil then bake for 20 min at 450 allow to cool reapply dark stain bake again for 10 min not wrapped apply stain thick as soon as removal then wipe Down 12 to 24 hours later I have a grained look and perfect match.

In just 10 minutes I removed 6 white rings in my wood coffee table with a cotton dish towel and iron. Now I do not have to refinish the table!

This works amazingly! Use the right amount of heat and apply for 10 second intervals. Wish I could provide before and after pics!

We used cotton towels it does take a while and you have to sit and watch it closely. Do not use steam but put iron on high. Stay and Watch ..... Dont walk away or you may ruin it , but it worked great for me !

The iron worked wonders. A friend sat a hot pizza on my coffee table 3 months ago and I thought I had to just live with the HUGE white spot until now.

It took some patience, but was so worth the time! Now I don't have to replace my coffee table.
