    That doesn't look like stain, it looks like the finish was marred by something like a chemical or heat. You will need to refinish it by either stripping or sanding down, restaining and then putting a top coat on.

    “Bedroom Furniture”, meaning a mattress?

    Blood, urine, vomit - all can be “eaten” by live enzymes.

    Natures Miracle enzymes (found at large pet supply stores)”, works very well.

    You’ll need to keep the stained area saturated with the enzymes and not use anything like bleach (as bleach kills the live enzymes). Two days later, check on the stains and rub with a clean rag, before re-applying.

    Thanks to you all for your advice. The furmiture is the headboard. Cream white in colour. The furniture is made of Mayan wood. Very problematic indeed. The stain is very stubborn.
