Remove Water Rings On Wood Furniture Organically

Who knew - the wonder's of mayonnaise - full flavor and all the fat please - but do you have rings on your good furniture - we have used this trick for years - and it really works need to restain your antiques.


  • 2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 or 2 paper towels
  • 6 hours or more needed to let stain be naturally removed... see below

  1. Locate ring from leaving your favorite ice tea or other cold drink that has now left a water mark on your Grandmother's passed down antique table top.
  2. Grab full fat mayonnaise (miracle whip ok too here folks)
  3. Spread 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise covering water ring.
  4. Gently place paper towel over water ring and slabbed on mayo- it's more to remind you that the mayonnaise is there than anything else while keeping the area moist.
  5. We used to leave it over night, but by 6 hours, wipe clean and voila, water ring is removed.
  6. Why does this work??? The fat in the mayonnaise gently gets reabsorbed into the water ring mark leaving you and your favorite antique table top looking fantastic...
  7. This is great in the summer when people forget to use coasters under their iced drinks...
