How You Can Use Toothpaste To Remove Heat Stains
Heat stains on wooden furniture happen fast and often without warning, but you can simply use toothpaste to remove these stubborn stains without much hassle.
Since toothpaste is alkaline, it causes a restorative reaction when it comes in contact with heat stains. However, opt for plain, white toothpaste rather than the gel type.
Wipe the dirt and oils from the wood surface with a damp cloth and let the area dry. Mix toothpaste and baking soda in a ratio of 1:2 and apply it to the stain.
Make sure to not spread to areas that are not stained because it can remove the finish. Leave it for up to 10 minutes to penetrate the wood before gently removing it.
Finally, use a dry cloth to wipe the table. If the stains persist, you can repeat the procedure for more satisfying results.
