Q: How do I remove white water rings from antique wooden furniture?
A: Nothing is more frustrating than having those unsightly white rings on wooden furniture. But there's no need to go to a furniture restorer for this—a basic staple from your kitchen is all you need: mayonnaise.
Spread some mayonnaise (about 2 tbsps) on a paper towel, lightly press on the watermarks, and rub gently.

It's natural, cheap and it will not harm your antiques in any way!
