white spot on wooden table??? help!


Hey everyone! I bought a great wooden table at a thrift store last weekend but there is just one problem. There is a white spot on it... the lady I bought it from said that it was probably from where someone put something hot on it and burnt it. Does anyone know how to get those off?? Thanks!

Are you sure it is a burn and not a watermark?

Mayonnaise will repair some watermarks.

Never really seen a white burn in furniture but you never know.

Let the mayo sit for a long while so that the mark can absorb the oils. I think that's the trick. Then wipe it with a damp cloth and dry it.

If that doesn't work get a small can of denatured alcohol, put a bit on a clean rag and wipe over it a few times.
I have seen this kind of thing before, water marks on a shellac finished table.

Can you tell if the white spot is in the finish or down into the wood itself?
