Removing Stains

Water Marks and Rings: Often, rings are in the wax, not the finish. Cover the stain with a clean, thick blotter, press down with a warm iron, and repeat. Or rub with salad oil, mayonnaise or white toothpaste. Wipe dry and wax or polish.

White Marks: Rub with a cloth dipped in a mixture of cigarette ashes and lemon juice or salad oil. Or rub with a cloth dipped in lighter fluid, followed by a mixture of rottenstone and salad oil. Wipe dry and wax or polish.

Milk or Alcohol: Use your fingers to rub liquid or paste wax into the stain. Or rub in a paste of boiled linseed oil and rottenstone with the grain, substituting pumice for dull finishes. Or rub with ammonia on a dampened cloth. Wipe dry and wax or polish.

Remove Water Spots from Polished Wood

Water makes a filmy gray spot. If not too deep, rubbing with the fingertip will remove the spot. Otherwise, use a small piece of cheesecloth tightly wrung out of hot water with 2 or 3 drops of household ammonia in it. Rub lightly and quickly with the cloth; then instantly rub with a soft oiled cloth. Finally go over the whole surface with oil. Rub until all extra oil is used. Keep coasters under glasses and guard wood floors from dripping umbrellas! Other ways to repair: Try wiping with mayonnaise; Make a paste of wood ash and salad oil; Ashes from cigarettes and saliva, and rub; hunk of raw potato with wood ash rubbed on it. Rub over the area.
