How to remove stains from wood

  1. If a stain has dried and is only on the surface of the wood, you can mix one part white vinegar with two parts water and wipe the stain away using a soft cloth.
  2. For white marks caused by hot cups which go beyond the surface; make a paste of one tablespoon of baking soda and one teaspoon of water.

Subsequently, question is, why is my white paint drying yellow? Oil-based alkyd paints are extremely durable and you can scrub them frequently without affecting their color. Unfortunately, some of the chemicals in them can cause the paint to yellow over time. If you use alkyd paint, make sure it will get plenty of sunlight, and avoid using ammonia around the paint.

Accordingly, how do you fix a water stain on wood?

  1. Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with enough water to form a paste.
  2. Apply the paste to your microfiber cloth.
  3. Gently rub the affected area for about five to 10 minutes.
  4. Wipe any residue or remaining moisture from the area using a dry microfiber cloth.
  5. Apply the furniture wax to re-seal the finish.

Can you use bleach on wood?

Generally, Clorox® Regular Bleach2 is suitable for disinfecting floors made of hard surfaces like ceramic tile, vinyl, and linoleum—not marble or other porous surfaces that aren't safe for bleach. Wood is porous, and generally we only recommend bleaching exterior finished wood surfaces, not interior hardwood floors.
