    My son had white circles on his coffee table and I used a hot iron over a clean pc. of rag or cloth. It worked wonders, just keep circling it over and over until the white disappears.

    Yes, mayo does work and so does Sandy's suggestion. Takes some time and some patience, but well worth the effort.

    Be cautious with the hot iron over a clean cloth. I used that method on a white spot on my table and ended up with a bigger spot. Made the finish crackly and rough.........much to my dismay.

    You can't keep the iron on one spot, you have to keep it moving around or it will also grab the old wax off the top and yes, leave a bigger spot. Sorry, should have mentioned that before. I actually DID DO THAT, but then I tried to go over it again with quick successions and it took that off too.
