Introduction: Get White Water Marks Out of Polished Furniture


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

Step 2: Can It Really Be This Easy?


Yes, it can.

Put the T-shirt on the table where the stain is.

Iron it with the hot iron for a few seconds.

Lift up the cloth, and see if stain is gone.

If not, repeat the process until the stain is gone.

    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 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.
