Glad it worked! What was the "dry lint free cloth" that you used?
ETA: Did you cover the water mark or the iron with it? Just curious because I have a really old family heirloom - a "tri-table" or you might say a three-leaf clover one with several marks - been hesitant to try anything on it...This message has been edited. Last edited by: Idaho Resident,
I used an old white cotton (I think it was cotton) napkin. I covered the mark with the napkin. then ironed it for a few seconds, stopped and took off the cloth. Let it sit a few seconds, then covered it again with the cloth, ironed it a few seconds and stopped and took off the cloth. I did this about 4-5 times and it magically disappeared - I still can't believe it.
If you try it - good luck. Hope it works as well for you as it did me.
I think you have to be careful not to make the iron too hot, but about a medium heat seemed to work fine.
Thanks, Music Lady, I appreciated the more precise instructions and will follow them when I attempt it. Might be a while though before I post back - the table in question is safe in a storage area designed for it. Will let you know when I attempt it - glad it worked out for you and that you posted back!
