Scorch Marks on my Table

Answer#1: (Ref:0569)Hot pan on Oak Table Reply  You need to remove the black scorch mark, then re-colour the wood if it's stained. Try sanding the area very lightly with a very fine sandpaper. You can purchase a crayon-like colouring stick from some furniture stores. Sand an inconspicuous area first and try shoe nugget or coloured wax to put back the wood colour before trying it on the table top. Another tip is cigarette ash rubbed on with a soft cloth in a circular motion. I've never tried that one myself, but it's an old "Wives Tale" remedy. Has to be only a light scorch though. -- Kirsty Brown  

Answer#2: Hot Pan on Table. Try mayonnaise; something about the oil helps raise stains. Then you may have to sand and refinish, as the other person said (sorry!) --  Lauren Matheson  Feb 13 2006
