We got an AWESOME deal on our dining room table 7 years ago. It was a wood table that sat 10 people, came with 8 chairs, and looked great too! All for around $400 at a used furniture store.
Four kids and lots of dinners later, the table has a *few* extra imperfections.
Like huge white spots in the middle.
Apparently these white spots are from putting things that are too hot directly on the wood. I’m not sure exactly why it happens (anyone know?), but I DO know how to get rid of it thanks to google!!
Here’s how to get rid of them in 4 easy steps:
1. Clean the piece of furniture.
2. Wet a clean thick cloth or piece of material. (If you don’t want to wet it, you can use the steam setting on your iron).
3. Place the cloth over the spot.
4. Turn your clothes iron onto one of the medium settings and go back and forth on the cloth for around 20-30 seconds. DO NOT just leave it in one place.
Remove the cloth and the spot should be gone! At least, it was for me!! It looks like in the picture that there’s a white ring around an area, but it ONLY shows up with the camera (you can’t see it when you look at the table).
