    Try s soft toothbrush and a bit of toothpaste. Wet your brush then gently rub the paste on the spot. You should see it disappear as you go. Try it on a tiny piece of the stain first to make sure it is working. Toothpaste id very abrasive, so be gentle

    I agree with Susan, but use a damp cloth instead of a toothbrush. Rub gently in a circular motion.

    Assuming this is a varnish finish, since it left a ring? You can make a homemade one tablespoon vinegar with two tablespoons olive oil. Mixwell dab on the spot with a soft cloth, then gently massage the oil into and around the ring. You can also use this to clean and polish the furniture. You may need to take a another dry cloth to dry or buff.
    Another option is New Life wood products from San Antonio. They can usually be found online or in an antique store. Used for 20 years fantastic product

    Hi there, Restore-A-Finish works really well. Just wipe on with a soft cloth in direction of wood grain and wipe off with a 2nd dry cloth. It comes in colors to match most woods and costs around $9.00.
