I've just refreshed the top of a "skip dived" brown wood chest of drawers by placing a couple of used damp tea bags over a white circle when the wood dry's I'll polish up the top with a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice.
Have you done this before? I stood a plant on an oak table and have been left with a very faint pale mark. I must try this to see if it works. There is always something to learn!
I am now a widow and live with my memories.
I have never used tea bags on big furniture/white rings, but used them once on pine door knobs that I could not seem to ever get the right shade I wanted, then polished them with bees wax and it worked really well. They have now been rubbed down gently with fine sandpaper and are on some shutters we made for the stables and painted green. LOL
Yes Albertajune many times and it works a treat. Put the tea bags on the area wet (I just fish them out of my tea pot after use of course) and leave them on the area for as long as needed. Then gently polish.
So would I Gwenoakes, but still not got the hang of how to post them and I didn't think on and take a picture beforehand. As for the final (ish) result well it could be better and I'll see what it looks like after polishing.
