Clean the entire top with mayonnaise. Put @ a teaspoonful directly on the wood and then distribute it with a soft cloth and rubbing until it no longer streaks. It's the only thing I use to really clean my wood furniture and it does a great job on kitchen cabinets.

I used the mayonnaise and I ker it soak on the table top for about 15minutes and after I wiped it off it looked the same. So mayonnaise does not work at all.

This worked really well on my table. I had seemingly impossible plastic stains from the back of some cheap placemats I had used with my kids. I was really surprised at how completely I was able to eliminate them using only mayonnaise and a magic eraser pad - who knew?


I chose the mayonnaise suggestion over the others because I was afraid to use anything too harsh that would destroy the finish. I just wiped the table down with Old English when I was done & now it's as good as new!!

agreed. I just tried this and removed it with a microfiber cloth... does nothing.

Did you wash the mayo off with anything before using Old English?

Try Malathion Liquide, not sure how the tabe will take it.

We had the same problem. Can anyone help. Real Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip?
