How to Remove Heat Stains from Tables

June 22, 2015

Hey! Hey, friends! Michael and I learned how to use iMovie over the weekend just so we could share this tip with you. At some point, someone put a hot bowl or plate on the side table in the sunroom, and it left a heat stain on the table. (Honestly, it was probably me.)

You guys have all seen these right? No amount of spraying or cleaner will remove them. There are videos online showing you how to remove them using a white towel and steam from an iron, but there is an even easier way to get rid of them. All you need is a damp Magic Eraser. That’s it. Wipe the eraser over the stain, and it literally disappears before your eyes.

I actually waited to remove the stain until I had time to film it, because I wanted to show you how ridiculously easy it is.

You’ll have to forgive the video quality. Although we learned iMovie in roughly 30mins, we’re still learning how to use our camera. But… how cool was that, right? Oh, Magic Eraser, you truly are magic!

(I would suggest testing it on your table in an inconspicuous area first, but I’ve used it on multiple tables over the years and never had a problem with it damaging the finish.)

In other news, we have contacted the winner for our custom silhouette contest. With their permission we’ll share the finished silhouette with you! If you’d like to make your own silhouette from a photo you can find the tutorial here.

It should also be noted, that our clear, monogrammed plate jumped off the wall yesterday. (You can view the carnage on our Instagram feed.) I used 3M Velcro Picture Hanging Strips to hang that one. (The other ones I super glued actual picture hangers to them.) They’re made to hold picture frames, up to 5lbs, so I’m not sure what happened there. Not a big deal. I am just happy the kids were already in bed when it happened, because glass went e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e!
