    I’ve heard toothpaste helps but I’ve used baking soda or corn starch to absorb the wetness if it’s still there to dry it out. Place a heavy item


    I would assume the finish came off from the spray. If that’s the case you’d need to refinish it or place a placemat over it.

    Is it a ring or droplets? This will matter as to how you fix it.

    As long as it is only a stain and not Sun Fade, Mayonnaise works. Anything Greasy and gone bad past the expiration date will: Crisco, Egg Whites, Bacon Fat, others too.

    Also a Steaming Boiled Hot Rag placed on the Area assists with anything that is really stubborn. Water costs less than fresh mayo, crisco or eggs.

    Worst comes to worst you Steam Iron a Thick Wet Cloth.

    One of these methods will work.

    I have tried mayo and toothpaste. The table is natural wood and it’s taken the colour right out in a ring. I’m just wondering if I’ll have to sand and stain!
