How to Remove Yellow Moisture Stain from White Furniture?


Hello - First of all, thank you in advance for your help. I have a beautiful white wood dresser from Ethan Allen and made the mistake of placing a circular planter on the dresser, with cardboard between the planter and the dresser, while I awaited a protective plate I had ordered. The cardboard got moist, and I now have a faint but visible yellow circular stain on the dresser. After reading Ethan Allen's care guide, I first tried wiping the stain with a very damp towel (no luck) and then I used a damp towel with a small amount of mild dish soap (no luck). I have read some articles suggesting to try a little bit of baking soda mixed with water, but I am worried about this damaging the wood. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
