I was telling you in a previous article how I moved into my grandma’s house which was built in late 70’s. When the refurbish process begun, I decided to restore some of the old furniture and maintain that vintage aspect. So, I kept two nightstands, one dresser, the king-size bed and of course, the coffee table.
If I already told you how to fix scratches on old wooden furniture, I want to share with you other “wooden problems” such as water rings on coffee table.
Yeah, the coffee table is very old! I guess it has the same age as my mom, and it definitely needs some improvements so, my interior designers used some magic tricks to restore the coffee table effortlessly. The same trick works for any long-lasting wooden furniture that has been “proposed” with a water ring.
- 1 tube of toothpaste
- Cotton cloth
How to remove water rings off wooden coffee table?
- Just for the record, it doesn’t matter which type of toothpaste you use. Any brand is ok, but I advise you to purchase some cheaper toothpaste because you need 1 tube to get this job done.
- So, squirt the white toothpaste onto the cotton cloth and rub the water stains on the coffee table. Don’t rub too hard, because after just a few scrubs you’ll see the difference.
If there are some stubborn water stains, use the next mix:
- Water rings are pretty easy to be removed if you use only toothpaste, but if the stains are old and stubborn (as it happened to me), you can add baking soda to the mix.
- Baking soda and toothpaste is the Scarecrow of water rings! This combo creates an even more potent scrubbing solution that will remove any stain of the coffee table.
