To remove heat rings from wood furniture, massage mayonnaise into the marks and leave it on overnight. The next morning, wipe off the mayo and the marks should be gone. You can also use petroleum jelly, butter or margarine. If you have a really stubborn spot, mix cigarette ashes or rottenstone (available at the hardware store) with the mayo and repeat the above procedure.
It WORKED! I thought this was the silliest thing to do, but after I left an iron on my beautiful Heywood Wakefield dining table I was desperate for anything to work. Mayo on wood WORKS!
its brilliant i burnt my chair with a solder in iron and it still worked
We (My family) leave glasses on my mother's table and they leave marks from them and I haven't tryed this yet but I plan to!
When I find such spots on my coffee table, I heat up the clothes iron, not too high, and iron on a brown paper bag over the spot. Presto!
I have used mayo and it does work, although it is much better not to abuse your wooden furniture. Many times the ring is from water getting trapped between the finish and the wood. Some finishes are more prone than others. Water and wood do not go together, always use coasters and keep moisture away from wood to prevent it from swelling. The only way to remove a burn is a big refinishing job. Keep potted plants off fine furniture to prevent accidents.
yes it works.....yahoo !!
