Stain Remover for Wood

We all forget to use a coaster every once in a while. By the time you are finished with your drink, there is already a water stain on the wood table. It’s a common stain that people may not know how to remove. However, we have a recipe that can help you out.

You will need:

-Olive Oil

-Table Salt

Directions: Make a thick paste by the mixing olive oil and salt in a bowl. The oil feeds the wood and the salt draws out the moisture. Rub the paste on the stain and let it sit for about 30 minutes. The thicker the paste, the better.
