Do you have a photo you can share to help us think of ideas for you? :)
I don't know what a Lifetime table is, if you share a photo, perhaps I can help.
Dee....I am unsure what type table you have....a picture would be great! Thanks
If you just want to strip off old polish/wax and rejuvenate the wood, mineral spirits will do the trick. You apply it with a rag. If you're unsure if this is the look you want, test it in an inconspicuous spot first.
It's one of those folding white tables. It's about 20 years old
Hi Dee! This is a video I found for making over a table like yours:
Hi Dee: For regular cleaning, mild dish soap and a damp cloth is all you need to keep your Lifetime table looking as good as new. For greasy food residues, a mild abrasive, such as Soft Scrub or Barkeepers Friend and a non-scratching pad will do the trick. You can also try a Magic Eraser. Or, if it's stained, Scrub the plastic using water and a mild detergent. Fill a sink or basin with soapy water and a little bleach. Apply rubbing alcohol to set-in stains and allow it to stand. Mix baking soda and water together to form a paste, using a sponge to scrub it into the plastic. This is particularly effective for oil stains. Good luck
For a makeover, collect photos of what you envision the made over table to look like and then make a list of materials you need to do the project. Take a good photo to a craft store or home improvement store for advice on paint, stains, tiles, grout, adhesives and other materials and application tools needed to achieve your desired finished table.
