    Use white toothpaste and a clean soft cloth. Put some toothpaste on the spot and rub in circles in one small area st a time until marks are gone. : )
    Hope that helps

    I’ve done this on a night stand and it worked... First, I put a dry cloth on the water mark. I used a clothes iron set to medium heat on top of the cloth. I just kept heating the wood making sure not to get it too hot and kept following that process for a few times taking the cloth off several times. the water mark came off and then I just polished it like normal.

    I have always used this for rings on my walnut dining table. Take a handful of shelled walnuts and put on stain. It will take a few days for the oil from the walnuts to absorb into the wood. Good Luck!
