Lacquered Coffee Table….Being sceptical, and a little nervous of trying the steam iron technique,I decided to try the hair dryer approach; figuring that heat would do the trick!! I am amazed it worked. Would the heated steam iron or oil and baking soda work on this type of table. The stain was almost completely gone, so as some others commented I immediately rubbed the area with vegetable oil. Your steam iron tip worked like a charm. Thank you for the advice. Baffling, but amazing! Thanks! You made my day! I cant wait to show my husband! Thanks for the tip, it worked like magic! Pledge helped and olive oil completely removed circular stain from a hot tea cup. IT Worked! We had a similar table from the same manufacturer for over 8 years and never had a problem. The spent some time polishing the marks away it worked pretty well. I’m worries that I’ll do more damage and wondering what to do. I’m hesitatant to try the same to remove it!!! It Isn't the wood that is damaged; it's the wax buildup from furniture polish. At first I used the hoovering method with steam, it was amazing, they were disappearing. but it worked for me too. TRY IT IN A SMALL HIDDEN SPOT FIRST AND SEE IF IT MAKES A STAIN OR NOT. I am still in shock at how easily it worked, I have just removed four large pizza box stains from my dining table. I can’t believe it but it worked! This allowed the moisture to escape. I had a mark on our dining room table. THANK YOU!!!! I tried the blow dryer, but it didn’t work. !my god it has worked, truly astonishing Table like new.Thank you…………………. Then I ironed some clothes with a towel and was sickened when it left large white marks on the same table. Thanks for the tip. Un Freakin’ believable! For us, it worked perfectly – I hope it works for you too. Check here he tells you how to fix the problems you have around the house. I want this to be a usable table, not one I have to iron every time I use it and not one I have to freak out about when the kids go near it. I used a hairdryer set on hot heat. I just now found this tip about the iron on your website and tried it. Most of the rings are gone, but now I’m trying to figure out how to get rid of the sandpaper scratches. If you have a clotes steamer it works best. So bad were they that we covered the table with a cloth. Steam on. The iron trick really works! It worked!! Yes all the white marks are gone but obviously it was to much heat/water penetrating that caused this issue in a couple areas. Literally only 2-3 seconds (as I was scared!) The steam method worked on some of the white spots but not others (didn’t do any harm either) so I don’t know if it’s the finish OR how deep the white stain goes. It really works!!!! I tryed just the steam iron [no cloth] then put oil on right after. Thank you so much for the great tip. This has been a lifesaver for me!!!!! On Thanksgiving I put a hot dish on top of a placemat without thinking. Thank you so much it worked like magic, I was very nervous to bring a hot steaming iron to my brand new $3200 table but I had nothing to lose and my table now looks amazing. It works! Whoever came up with this solution is a genius!!!! Well, my story is like so many other stories that have been posted. My only option now is to refinish the entire top of the table. whoever had the courage to try this process- i have not enough words to thank you! wow! will the steam iron method work on a wood vaneered table thanks. I am so glad I googled. THIS WORKS! Thanks you so much!! First without the steam. Thanks for letting me know this has helped you :). I was too afraid to lay an iron directly down – even on a towel, so I hovered the steam over the spots, and wiped immediately. Now my table is like it was when I bought it! Now I don’t have to hide it!! What am i doing wrong. This worked, but at a price. OMG!!!! Thank you again!! I also found this site and was convinced it might work. I am absolutely stunned. Feedback greatly appreciated. Who knew?! Used a bath towel (for thickness) and started up my iron. Can confirm. Thanks! And I WILL tell everyone that I know about this idea. Holy cow! The other methods (toothpaste/baking soda, mayo) did not work but the iron worked amazingly. I use 1/2 cup of mayonnaise with 1/4 cup of baking soda. Very disappointing to say the least. Wow Wow Wow! the internet is wonderful. I don’t know what type of finish is on my table, but I believe it is pine wood. Thanks for sharing this excellent tip, I was worried we’d have to get the table re-polished. Thank you! HOLY COW —Worked like MAGIC!!! Now I have an iron mark. I did anyway. (Note: Not sure if our table is varnish or shellack, and we acted quickly, w/in 1/2 hour just to be safe), White spot gone. Five minutes later, my table looked like new!! It is now an hour later, and it looks gorgeous … I crapped myself with excitement! I’ve lived with several cloudy white marks on our Skovby teak dining table since just after buying it. AND WHEN I TOOK IT UP THERE WAS THIS HUGE HEAT STAIN.. MY MOM CAME HOME AND SHE WAS FURIOUS.. UP UNTIL NOW =] I JUST GOOGLED THIS– YOU SAVED MY BUTT! Then wipe it off. My mom placed the turkey on a dish towel because we had nothing else to put it on. We used only canola (vegetable oil), and it worked. Maybe 30 sec and it was gone. It works perfectly!! Just rub on and then polish as usual. Used the iron (with steam) and a white dish towel on a 20+ yr old table and the white stains disappeared after only a few seconds. Yes, I have a black Crate & Barrel coffee table and side tables. Google is a great thing, I googled how to remove cloudy spots and got directed to this tip, and I couldn’t be more happy! A true skeptic here….but no more. Thank You so much! Thank You! Next day I bought an iron and removed both stains in less than a minute. I didn’t use steam, just heat. Life saver haha x. I guess you can believe some things you read on the Internet. See my post toward the bottom of the page for theory and a better method. Step 3 – With iron on medium heat, firmly press the iron down on the towel and continuously move it in a circular motion over the area with the stain for about 20 seconds Thanks, I am amazed that it worked!! Steam generator iron through a muslin cloth and the white mark vanished, I oiled the table top generously afterwards and left it for a while before polishing with normal furniture polish and it looks fabulous! Thank you for posting this! I have only added an iron shaped white mark and raised the wood grain. The wood was finely cracked and didn’t know if it was already there or from me. Hours later I lifted the towel to find huge cloudy white mark on it. Because of the water stain I made sure it was converd when they came over. I was amaized and so happy for the result that obviosly I kept doing with the rest of the stain… and now my table is stain free but still with the scratches though… I’ll try to post pics of the “after” and “before” and hopefully they work out, so all of you can see that Im not lying but mainly to check it out for yourselfs and see that it REALLY WORKS! :o). It may be necessary, however, to do … I put olive oil all over the table, wrapped the iron in an old white cotton cloth, on a low heat and ironed the table directly. At first it only made a small difference but with trial and error we saw major differences and then went back over the marks that still showed to some degree. Slowly, but surely, after doing this 4 or 5 times the stains (caused by hot pizza box, like so many others reported) was all but gone — I’d say 98%. Nothing made a bit of improvement and what I didn’t previously say is that the steam made the white marks significantly worse. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I put a hot baked sweet potato on my roommate’s new cherry table while he was gone on vacation! However, since you removed the troublesome layer, do not reburn….. I then got a 100% cotton white shirt from my closet and set the iron on no steam, but it did not help. I have an antique table that has numerous cloudy spots. saved my deposit on the house!!! This really works. I noticed after the tablecloth came off that there were crayon and marker stains ALL OVER my table!! I’m siked now I just need help removing old ring stains. I was so skeptical on this method. Who would have thought!! Thanks so much for the tip. Wow it worked like a mug woohooo!!!! $40k wooden bar. I put a hot pyrex dish on top of a table mat…and took it off an hour later and there was a huge white cloudy stain on my beautiful dining room table. I’m out of the dog house! I will recommend this website a lot…. I finished with old english wood polish and my table looks like new again. Make a paste with baking soda and a few drops of water. We had huge white marks on our table and all of them diappeared. I polished it up with a wood polish after and it’s beautiful! I used a white dish towel and the cloth “fuzz” came off onto the wood! I sprayed the spot lightly with water first, laid a thin towel over it, and use the medium steam setting on my iron. After applying the Iron, it worked. Marks gone in about 30 seconds. So I was dumb and decided to lay a blanket over it and use it as an ironing board and when i removed the blanked 2/3s of the table was covered in a new white stain (keep in mind our table is espresso and at this point it is 3:30 in the morning). I am so happy! I’m shocked and thrilled! So, he took a small towel, set the iron to steam, and put it directly on top of the towel for 2-3 seconds. I told him bout this site and he was not buying it…..steam worked n less than five seconds. When I try to find the spot, I can see just a little blemish. 15 seconds steam ironed over folder paper towel and heat ring disappeared! I repeated this process two or three more times and the horrilbe “iron” stain and the original stain disappeared!!! We are not ready with one child and another on the way to refinish the table it seems like a wasted effort and are glad that this worked because the table is beautiful and we want to enjoy it. I was so upset! This worked right away and made my small side table look better than it did before it had the burn on it earlier tonight! Absolutely astounding! And special thanks to Google for helping me find your truly fabulous site!!! Had several white spots on my antique cherry dining room table. Then the olive oil brightened it all up and yes, it did look like new. Finally, after months and months of being sad about my coffee table (two steaming hot pizza boxes were the enemy), I decided I had nothing to lose. Thank you so much for this amazing trick! It may have something to do with the type of wood finish/varnish. I wiped Old English scratch remover at the end of one of the steam treatments and left it there. You know when you leave water on wood and it actually sort of splits in many places so then it is rough to the touch. Thank you so much for the tip, although, it did make my stains worse (must have been a different finish as you mentioned ).. For us it actually damaged the finish. Toothpaste did not work..it took the stain off. Thanks for this great tip ! thank you!!!! What you are doing is swiping a hot damp towel over the area, that is how you fix the table. My wife thinks I’m the greatest- again. It looks like new I am tempted to hover the iron around the entire table LOL!!! It's a small, cream coloured, pressurised tin of foam! I was just sick this morning when I found the big white splotch. In desperation I “Googled” the problem and found this site. This table was purchased 70 years ago by my grandparents when they got married. We tried the steam iron but it made it worse. In fact, so I didn’t have an oil spot on the table, I polished the entire tabletop with it and it looks very shiny and nice. Then followed the tips posted,rubbed vegetable oil, wetted the cloth and placed steam iron over the wet cloth for about 10-15 seconds and it worked !!! White stains were under the paper plates! Mix 50/50 vinegar and olive oil and rub into the watermark. Wish me luck?? And IF my sister knew, she would thank you too! This TOTALLY works. Keep boiling and repeat until almost gone. I had to scour off the white layer between each attempt but it worked a treat. The white spots were all over the top and the edges. I have an Amish made dining room set that I just loved and my husband refused to believe he was the reason for all the white spots on the table as he would put a paper plate down with hot food without a barrier. UN-FREAKIN-BELIEVABLE!!! I used a white table cloth doubled over and just hovered my iron over the area while pressing the steam button. I just got an old (slightly grubby) off-white floor clothe, got the steam iron on medium ironed over the small mark a few times and it was gone!!! I just tried the iron on the white stain on my dark oak table – it has never been varnished – just beeswax polish – Hey presto!! Thankyou so much, My boyfriend brought some mates back for a few drinks last night and this morning I noticed about four white rings on our new coffee table I was furious, but thanks to you I cant believe it actually works I was a bit worried at first but it actually works. It works and it was so easy! So even if the method made it worse, try working with it again since it seems to be an elastic process. I honestly thought this couldn’t possibly work – it is so counter-intuitive – but after reading someone’s comment that it “couldn’t possibly make it any worse” I though, well that’s true, so gave it a go. I couldn’t believe it and it defied logic to me–wouldn’t the steam cause more damage? How to make your chair comfortable and provide lumber support? Same happened to us. It probably took me 2 minutes because I was SO timid and kept ironing for no more than 10 seconds and checking (and drying) the mark. No one will ever know that the table had been damaged. I was in the process of trying to find a local wood refinisher on line when I found tip. I keep running my hand across the top and I can’t feel any damage to the finish. Thanks for publishing this tip! We had a coffee table and a dinner table with white stains from spilt champagne and water, left overnight. So my table was covered for 10 years with these white spots but no longer…. Thank you so much. I was sick that our $5000 solid cherry game table was ruined. Thanks so much for your recommendation!!! Thank you this came right up. Okay, I give up!

Im not sure if its varnish or Shellac or even what wood type it is…i just know its relatively new! Had family over for dinner and used paper plates = 5 white marks after dinner. Thanks, We were staying at a cabin and made a turkey dinner. The mayonnaise worked like a charm! amazing!!! Thank you so much! Thanks everyone! Does anyone know the science behind this treatment? Just set your iron on dry heat (no steam) and place a tea towel over the spot and iron it out. Is there any way I can get rid of these pressure marks…If i continue sanding it does not seem to work and I really want to start protecting it, but figure the marks will still show through the clear polyurethane. Your tips helped like a charm. All stains are gone and table looks brand new. I had a girl’s night at my house and we ate on paper plates and left white marks all over our brand new black table. I’ll wait a while to see how it is later, but for now it looks good. Still nothing. Thank you. Our first dinner on our brand new cherry wood table created four white steam stains. I think I will try the mayonaise tomorrow…if it doesn’t work,I wonder if this would…, I went online searching ‘how to remove white water marks from table’ . This took them all away!!! I am going to try with this third iron again and use oil to see if that gets rid of every trace of marks. Left white curcle. Tried products recommended by hardware store & worked for hours with it. I too tried the heat (hair dryer) method on my walnut table and it was only worse, but after reading Renee’s comment I tried baking soda/water paste and the white came right out. Can’t wait to show my husband when he comes home and thank you for your website and sharing the tip. It worked like a charm. Appreciated. The steam iron method worked! I told my mom about this tip. THANK GOODNESS. Thought I was going to have to sand it back! Thank you!!! At our family gathering last year, someone left the coffee urn slightly open and hot coffee dripped all over it.

Thank you all for the advice that I just put into practice. THANK YOU!!!! . You can’t tell anything has ever been wrong with them now. I tried the steam Iron remedy and it WORKED. The steam iron on a tshirt filled by olive oil totally got the stain out! I ironed over 50 napkins on my table and flattened my irnoning board so that I could sit down and watch TV while ironing. I tried some Pledge, which only helped a very little bit! Now, about the red nail polish I splashed across my buffet when I dropped it….anyone? Thank you!! You’re truly a lifesaver. The crack is barely noticeable and the stains are gone. Thank you so very much! The toothpaste worked instantly like magic! What a relief. I did it in small areas and for short bursts just incase… But unbelievably it worked. As everyone says a hot steam iron hovering above a tea towel worked wonders. i just cannot stop laughing about it! I couldn’t believe it when the pizza box left a huge white stain THROUGH my placemats! I tried the hair dryer method to remove the huge white spot and unbelievably it worked like a charm. Tried briwax but little or no change. If you wait a second next time you shower, and you take the blow drier and blow dry the glass, the condensation will dissipate because you heat the glass. A few seconds took away all my heartache! We tried further to just hover the iron a couple of inches over the table with steam on and the white mark disappeared. It worked beautifully. I tried this on a cherry veneer dining room table and now have the mark of the iron showing. It seemed to work after the wood became warm. Nothing makes you feel stupider than doing what could be hundreds of bucks in damage trying to save a dollar or two by fixing something yourself. It seemed to do alot better but it left a few white spots around the towel, I continued with all the spots. Worked amazingly on antique oak table. She had called a refinisher to get a quote and they came back with $700 to fix it. It was so worth it. Not thinking…obviously….. Thanks for the tip. I followed up with applying some olive oil for the finish and the table is like new. I NEVER would have tried this without all these comments so THANK YOU! Thought my son had ruined a favorite side table w/ hot food, but steam iron was the ticket! We had two areas of white stains on our mahogany veneered dining table, one going back over 20 yrs. After I done it, I wiped it over instantly with a dry cotton rag and then applied a little Olive Oil and rubbed it in well. We then used wood polish and BAM! Well, I read on Pinterest what various people suggested, and while some didn't work, this did! I did this on 14 June 2012. Tried the dry iron first – it didn’t work, so was skeptical of the whole idea, but the steam setting did the trick. OMG, I can’t believe that worked. My beautiful mid-century table had a huge white mark where my teens put take out on the table. Thank you so much for your tip! Bless you all. sorry – 40 years in the antiques trade – what I would have give for this tip years ago – saved me a fortune in restoration fees. then quickly rub in some vegetable oil .

Yes, that happened to me also. I took a small towel (the size of a handkerchief). Now all I have to do is sort out a mark I created with a perfume bottle leaking and causing a ring. I read these posts and thought NO WAY will that work but I thought i have nothing to loose so i gave it a go and i was so shocked when it actually worked so don’t be afraid give it a try as it REALLY does work .. I then tried mayonnaise (but only for a few minutes). My husband will be so happy. steam worked – but the spot where stain was has a sort-of roughened texture now – not as smooth as the rest of the table. I can’t wait to pass it on. After using 0000 steel wool and lemon oil followed by vegetable oil I can say that while no magic happened the table definitely looks significantly better. I accidently created an overspray or cloud/mist of valspar high gloss finish/clear in my dining room which covered my dining table. Thank you so much for saving my beloved table!
