    I have a small white place on top of my coffee table, due to someone sitting something very warm on it. Any ideas of how to get it off? Thank you.

      I have never tried this, but I have read that mayonnaise gets that off. Try a google search on it?

    This combo of oil and vinegar ruined the finish on my cabinets. They are very blotchy looking. How can they be fixed without replacing cabinets. I have lung issues so can't refinish them?
