Remove Water Stains with a Hair Dryer

remove water stains

Remove water stains from your coffee tables, dining room table or even your piano bench (!) with the concentrated heat of your hair dryer.

Cool glasses of water or hot cops of tea–along with those sippy cups full of juice that your kids love–leave a white mark on wood furniture. You don’t need to sand it down and refinish it, or even fill it in with a wax pen. Instead, get out your hair dryer. On high heat, hold the dryer over the stain, moving the dryer back and forth in sweeping motions. Watch as the stain “melts” before your eyes: what you’re seeing is  actually just the release of moisture from the glass or cup that’s settled into the wood.
