Mayonnaise Removes Water Stains on Wood

mayonnaise removes

Mayonnaise removes water stains on wood–and when you’re done cleaning your coffee table or desk, you can sit down an enjoy a sandwich.

Why is it that we always seem to leave something damp on our best end table? Before you bust out the chemical wood cleaner, try this: put a dab of mayonnaise on a paper towel. Rub the mayonnaise into the water stain and wait a few minutes. Then, wipe it off with a fresh towel. Water stain: gone!

(The oils in the mayonnaise lubricate the part of the wood that’s been dried out by the water stain.)
