HELPFUL HINT WEEKEND TIP - Removing Beverage Rings

Finally made it back to my helpful hint weekend post. This is one that so many of us have had to deal with over the years. If you have successfully fixed this problem in another way, please post take a minute to post it to the comments for this blog entry. This weekly feature is all about us helping each other.

Do you have some of those ugly old white old rings left from condensation of a glass or vase that once sat upon your table? There's hope!

Now. I'm not a smoker and have no friends that are, but this remedy would actually get me out to buy one pack and just let some burn into a tray outside. Collect and mix cigarette ash with some beeswax furniture paste. Rub on lightly on your piece of furniture and buff with a dry soft cloth.
Rewax your item if needed.

That's interesting! I know my mom has used mayo before to get out rings. She would just rub it into the wood and clean.
