    Hi Gloria, what is your table's surface? Real wood, cmposite, or what?

  • If it's wood, you can try a little mayonnaise if it's a white mark.

    here is info for you Gloria

    Combine Vinegar and Olive OilIn a small bowl, mix equal parts vinegar and olive oil. Apply the mixture to the water stain using a cloth. Wipe in the direction of the wood grain until the stain is gone. The vinegar will help remove the stain while the olive oil acts as a furniture polish.

    Hi Gloria, here are a few ideas you can try, hope they help

    A hair dryer

    Put your hair dryer on its lowest setting and direct it at the water ring. Be sure to move the dryer around so there is no direct heat and the wood doesn't overheat


    Mayonnaise or petroleum jelly

    Apply a dab of either substance with a soft cloth and rub it into the mark in a circular motion. "If the stain is not removed completely, apply more product and leave on for an hour or two and try again. In fact, you can leave it on as long as overnight.


    Toothpaste

    Look for one that's non-gel and non-whitening, then apply it to the wood in the same direction as the grain. Remove the paste, then use a wood polish to make the surface shine.

    Here you go:


    Iron water stains out of wood tables.

    As with most stains, it helps to act quickly. If the water stain has been there for only a few days, use the heat in this method to evaporate all traces of moisture.

    1. Empty your clothes iron of all the water inside, then bring it into the room with the affected piece of furniture.
    2. Plug in the iron, then lay a cotton napkin, towel, or T-shirt over the stain.
    3. With the iron set on its lowest setting, apply it briefly to the fabric before lifting the cloth to see if the water ring has diminished.
    4. Repeat until (we hope) the white water stain has disappeared.

    Alternatively, you can try using a hairdryer to achieve the same effect. Move the dryer back and forth over the area for about 10 minutes until the moisture evaporates.

    Hi Gloria: If it's wood and steam stains, put a dab of mayonnaise on it. Let it sit for about 20 seconds and wipe off. Or, you can spray some WD40 on it, let it sit for an hour or so and then wipe off. You may have to do it a couple of times if it's deep.


    Good luck
