    How to remove liquid bandage from wood table?

      Sorry my friend, don't wanna be a Negative Nancy. I'm convinced nothing returns it to the original look. Got some nice oak furniture, don't know why chose this location to shake the bottle in attempt to get the last bit of Liquid Bandage on my hand for a light cut washing dishes rubbing against a sharp knife in the sink. Two drops fell onto the top of my wood furniture. No exaggeration all within 1 to 2 minutes I applied wood cleaner immediately followed by wood polish, spots never cleared up. Although the polish makes it look better for a week or so it returns back to it's new original state. My fault by being an idiot but apparently it eats the clear coat nearly upon contact. Regarding the nail polish recommendation, to be clear I could be completely wrong, I've never tried it but I'd be concerned it would have close to the same effect the liquid band aid would stripping away the clear coat. Just my 2 sense.

      Really sucks how at nearly immediately at the point of contact the stuff can do so much visual damage but guess you live and learn.

    I have spilled equally difficult products. Goof Off and Goo Gone are my go to.

  • You need a solvent to remove it, something like wd40 or goo gone. You can buy other products in a hardware store.

    Like the others have mentioned, goo gone should ease it up. Following with some Olive oil will help with any discoloring that may be caused by using the goo gone...

    Goo Gone will remove this, then follow up with olive oil or mineral oil. If nothing works, you might consider refinishing the top it you feel you need to.

    Call a furniture Restorer or French Polisher.
