Here’s a fast and straightforward tip for eradicating stains from wooden!


Nothing spoils the look of wooden furniture or tables like a water stain. Water damages wooden furniture and tables! This is the case when you forget to use coasters on your tables and the water ends up soaking it. And this is where the spots appear!

Here is a tip for removing water stains from wood.

NB: We always remind you to consult the indications of your furniture to avoid damaging your surfaces. Always try the method in a hidden corner.

As you know, wooden surfaces are very delicate.

They absorb moisture and this is the reason why you find white stains on your wooden furniture.

The good news, however, is that these marks can be removed by simply using a hair dryer!

Take a hair dryer and set it on the hot end.

Now point it at the stain and move the hair dryer back and forth to avoid heating one spot.

Hold the hair dryer about 2 inches from the stain.

You should always make sure that the wood does not overheat, as dark spots could form.

This operation can take between 10 and 30 minutes!

Take a rag and towel and rub the stain until it is gone.

Finally, apply a little olive oil on the wood to make it shiny.

This method is very effective, but remember to always act quickly, otherwise the stain will not be easy to remove.

It is advisable to act on the stain while it is still recent.

If, on the contrary, you notice dark stains on your surface, it means that the water has already entered the wood and that it has gone too deep to be removed.

Other tips

However, water stains on wooden surfaces can also be removed with the help of other quick and easy tips.


It is based on the same principle as the hair dryer. You can also use an iron to remove traces of water.

Start by making sure that the wooden table or cabinet is completely dry.

Then place a tea towel on the stain and use an iron that has been emptied of its water.

Set it to the lowest temperature and iron directly on the fabric. Make sure it is not set to steam mode.

Occasionally, move the rag to check if the stain is fading and continue until the stain is gone.

Remember, however, to dry the surface with a cloth after each ironing in order to remove all traces of moisture.

NB: Use this method very carefully so as not to damage the surface.


Another tip that we recommend is to use toothpaste.

This ingredient also seems effective in the case of older and more resistant white spots.

Put toothpaste on a dry cloth and rub it on the stain.

Leave it on for a few minutes, then take a slightly damp cloth, and rub it gently on the stain.

You can repeat the operation several times if necessary.

You will notice that the stain fades more and more until it disappears completely!

NB: Always be careful not to use whitening toothpastes, which could discolor the surface.

Also be careful not to rub too hard on the stain.

Baking soda

Finally, the last remedy, which can be very helpful in these cases, is baking soda.

This ingredient, which you probably have in your pantry, is known for its anti-tartar and cleaning properties.

Take a small bowl and pour in some water with baking soda.

Then dip a clean, soft cloth in the mixture and dry it to remove excess water.

Moisten the stain to be treated and rub gently.

Finally, use a clean cloth to clean.

And there you have it, the stain will disappear!


It is recommended to always consult the product labels of the surfaces to be treated before trying these tips.

Try them in a hidden corner first to avoid damaging the surfaces!
