I have used this method for over ten years. I somehow always inherit master bathrooms that are huge...but have problems...and always streaky water damaged wood is one of them. I have used this trick on vanities, furniture and now on this door. It is super simple and you only need petroleum jelly and a rag...and a teeny tiny bit of patience.
Here are the super easy steps:
Clean the area
Rub petroleum jelly into the wood.
Let sit for about one hour.
Wipe excess petroleum jelly off (you may need to do this over the course of a few days).
Minor water damage gone!
(there may be a small amount of residue on the surface...it soaks in and you can also wipe the surface clean)
