We think all homekeepers would agree when we say water rings on wooden furniture are no fun—they are tough to remove and they ruin the beauty of a furniture piece. Lucky for us, The Cleaning Diva CEO Marivic Arambulo is here to teach us a hack that works like a charm. Check it out below: 

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. The basic ingredients of mayonnaise—eggs, oil, vinegar, and lemon oil—replicate the chemical ingredients in wooden furniture polish. The best part? It's natural, cheap and it will not harm your antiques in any way!
