Have white spots on my wood dining room table- what can I do?

I think they are caused by hot dishes. I've tried using the iron with cotton t-shirt. They go away but come back. How do I get rid of them??

    White toothpaste (not gel) and a damp cloth. A dab of toothpaste on the cloth and gently rub in a circular motion. Keep it moist. Then wipe away.

    That's typical of older lacquer-based finishes, and I've had it happen on a large desk I use at my office---hot coffee cup on it resulted in that white-spotting, which was permanent. Best to sand the whole thing down and then refinish using a 2-part conversion finish made to protect kitchen cabinets. If you don't feel confident in mixing the parts and then spraying, you could use a water-based Spar urethane--it's made to withstand UV sunlight and moisture, and is available at your local big-box store and many hardware stores.
