Removing White Spots on Wood Furniture With Vaseline

When you set a wet object, including a glass with melting ice, on a piece of wood furniture, the condensation can drip down and leave behind a white spot, often a telltale ring. Spicy dishes set on a table without a coaster may also leave behind white stains, which would be the consequence of water penetrating the timber’s finish.To eliminate the mark, you must utilize something which pulls the moisture from the end, such as Vaseline or a different brand of petroleum jelly.

Mix oil soap formulated for cleaning wood according to the package instructions.

Put on the soap to a damp white cloth. Wipe the white spot softly to remove any polish or wax buildup. Reapply as needed according to the package instructions.

Dry the washed place using a dry white cloth.

Scoop out Vaseline or other brand of petroleum jelly with your finger or a different white cloth to cover the blot.

Rub a thick poultice of the Vaseline or other petroleum jelly into the stain and leave it on overnight.

Wipe away the excess oil jelly with a dry, white cloth after 24 hours.

Repeat Steps 4 through 6 as necessary until the white spot is gone.

Reapply wax or wax into the cleaned spot according to the package instructions.
