Use Mayonnaise To Remove Water Marks on Wood

Someone forget to use a coaster ( do not worry!) Budget Savvy Diva has the solution for you.

Take 2 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise ( FULL FAT) or Miracle Whip

Cover ring with mayonnaise
Leave it over night or at least 8 hours – wipe it clean and the ring will be GONE!

Why It Works

The fat in the mayonnaise is reabsorbed into the ring thus causing the ring to disappear.

I have done this trick many times — because I always forget a coaster 😉

Does the mark have to be new or will it work on marks a few months old?
