    I have not tried this because I have never had the problem but cigarette ash is supposed to help by rubbing it on with a cloth.

    lightly rub with Mr. Clean white eraser and then try Vaseline overnight. Then polish

    Hi Debbie! I've been able to remove some with low heat. I used the low heat setting on a hair dryer. Be careful to not get it too hot. It doesn't always work.

    A cloth over the marks. An iron set to warm and iron over the cloth. A dab pf white toothpaste on a damp cloth and rub in a circular motion.
