Rid Your Furniture Of Water Stains

Erase white heat marks and water rings on wood
furniture: If the wood has a good finish (don't try on
bare wood), mix equal parts of baking soda and
regular white, nongel toothpaste. Lightly dampen
corner of a clean, soft white cloth with water and
dip into the paste. With circular motion gently buff
the marks for a few minutes. Wipe area clean, and
buff to a shine. Follow with furniture polish. (If rings
remain after buffing five minutes or so, they may
have penetrated the wood; you might have to
refinish the piece).
