Amazing way to remove scorch marks from a wooden table!

So, it turns out my husband and his friends cannot be trusted with hot chinese food around my funiture. I was filled with rage when I came down for breakfast to see a hideous white scorch mark on my beautiful polished dining table.

After a thorough bollocking was handed out to the defendants I got to researching ways to restore the table back to its original scorch-free beauty.

There’s plenty of complex solutions needing a list of specialist materials of which might as well include the tears of a mermaid and shaved unicorn horn as I don’t own and have no idea where to purchase the listed materials.

Then the iron method popped up and promised amazing results so I took a deep breath and gave it a go…

It seems totally bonkers to me that heat can cause a scorch mark and that heat plus steam can remove it!! But it worked so husband and co have been let out of the dog house… for now 🙂
