How to Remove Spots on Wood

38K Views
This is a find and fix it that you will definitely want to file away for when those accidents happen to your gorgeous wood furniture pieces. Ever left a nice fatty ring from your cup of coffee on your gorgeous wooden coffee table? Or had the steam from your boiling tea kettle blast up onto a nearby wooden cabinet? Or better yet had your coffee pot overflow with a leak and drip down your front cabinet? YEP. All that has happened to me before. But thank goodness for this trick!!

    Straight up mayonnaise works on water stains on wood. wipe on, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe off. Beautiful!

    I wouldn't say Tom's toothpaste is any ole cheap toothpaste. That stuff is pricey. Great product at any rate... for pearlies and cabinets. :) thanks for sharing.
