Several months ago, my lovely boyfriend put a hot porcelain teapot & tea cup down on our teak mid-century coffee table, and the result was heart-crushing white “burn” marks.
He didn’t realize what was going to happen by that hot teapot, but nevertheless I was soooo upset! I tried several different things to get the marks off to no avail. I was mentally preparing myself for having to sand down the whole thing and re-do the top.
However, while visiting my family in GA this past week, I flipped through an old issue of Ready-Made magazine and they mentioned that an iron + cotton towel could solve all my white burn mark woes!
Lo, and behold they were RIGHT! After holding the hot [dry] iron on each stain for only about a minute, the marks were gone!!
I’m beyond thrilled right now! I feel as if I accomplished something really big tonight! Haha. I hope someone else out there has this same problem, and I make your night just the way that Ready-Made made mine!
