    Three Methods

    1 Put mineral oil on a soft rag and rub it into the stain. Let it sit overnight and repeat if the stain seems to have diminished.

    2 Rub the stain with mineral spirits on a soft cloth if the mineral oil doesn’t work. Mineral spirits is a mild solvent that can remove a stain that has penetrated into the wax, but not the finish.

    Wear gloves and apply it in a well-ventilated area. Give it a few minutes to work.
    If the stain is gone but the spot looks dull, rub mineral spirits over the entire surface.
    Put on a new coat of furniture polish.

    3. Use a mixture of baking soda and toothpaste if mineral spirits don’t work. The proportions aren’t important, but don’t use toothpaste gel.

    Put the mixture onto a damp cloth and rub with the grain until the stain is gone.

    Clean the area by washing with oil soap.
    If the stain doesn’t disappear the first time, try another application.
    Coat the wood with a quality furniture wax.
