Understanding Water Rings:

Water rings on wood furniture are caused by moisture penetrating the finish and creating a cloudy or white mark. Before diving into the solution, it’s crucial to comprehend the damage to apply the right remedy effectively. The process I will share in this post works on water rings, scratches, and other minor imperfections in the finish of the wood piece.

Steps To Remove Water Rings & Scratches

  • Put a small amount of salve on the steel wool and apply it directly to the wood piece of furniture where the scratches and water rings are. Apply some pressure to get the salve into the surface of the piece. I apply the salve to the entire surface after I get the water rings. The salve makes the wood look so good so after I get the scratches and the water rings done, I usually apply it to the rest of the piece.

  • Let it sit. Allow the salve to sit on the surface after you apply it. Most of the time, the salve soaks into the wood and you will not need to remove any excess. If you do have a ton of excess after a few hours, you can wipe it off with a dry rag.
  • That’s it! It works so well and your pieces will look amazing for years to come.

Prevent Future Damage – To prevent water rings in the future, consider using coasters or placemats to protect your wood furniture from moisture. Educate your family and guests about the importance of using these protective items to maintain the furniture’s pristine condition.
