After years of trying to get rid of water stains on my wood tables, I found this trick online. The recommendation was to iron my tables.
I have to be honest, I was quite hesitant to take a hot iron to any of my precious wooden tables. After all, wooden tables are my weakness. I love transforming them ~you can peek at what I did to my old kitchen table by clicking here ~ but since they were already so damaged and I didn't want to refinish them unless absolutely necessary, I was willing to try just about anything. Scary? Yes, but they really couldn't get any worse looking and in the end, this method worked like a charm. (You can check out a creative living room table transformation by clicking here!)
I placed a cotton shirt between the iron and the table and applied pressure, in a swirling motion to distribute the heat evenly and when I was done, the water stains had completely and totally disappeared.
There was no damage to the wood from the iron either. ***If you would like to see more of this process and the other tables I tackled, you can check out the full post on my website.***
Materials I used for this project:
- Cotton T-Shirt or Rag
