Had a fab party while your parents were away?

Left with white marks where your friends put down their drinks on your mum's best table?

Try this.

(I realise there is no stain in this picture. That just goes to show how effective this technique is. I promise you there was one there before.)

Step 1: What you will need

1. A table with a stain on it.

(I can't illustrate this, obviously, because my stain has gone.)

2. A T-shirt

3. An electric iron
<p>No way. There was no mark there to start with. You took photos step by step, so why no stain in any of them? Surely you couldn't have forgotten to take a &quot;before&quot; photo when you took one of all the other steps, could you?</p>
<p>Hilarious that snarky step three tells *me* to plan ahead, but you forgot to take a &quot;before&quot; photo.</p>
This will become useful one day for me I'm sure. Thanks for the great instructions on 2What a neat post! I never knew that there was a stock for furniture. I wonder if I could invest in furniture <a href="http://www.gordonsrefinishing.com" rel="nofollow">repairs in lancaster ca</a>. It has really helped.
That's amazing. Just last week I left a hot pizza box on my wooden kitchen table - the trick I found (in a book) was to make a paste of equal parts baking soda and olive oil and rub it in. After a few minutes polish as usual. It was miraculous, and it also removed some other random stains I had given up on. Not as dramatic as the iron, but no risk of burning or electrocution!
i used kitchen towel
I worked for a while in a used furniture shop. While being there I learned the same technique but used matches or a lighter instead, works wonders and increases the value. Good tip, nice seeing it becoming known to people in general.
