Saturday Solutions: Wood Stains

One day last week I was talking on the phone with one of my friends.  This friend, who will remain nameless, happens to clean houses part time.  While she was cleaning she said "Brandi, I am going to be in so much trouble!"  I asked her what the problem was, she informed me that she had brought the wonderful new cup that I had bought her house cleaning.  I am think why is this a problem??  She then informs me that she had placed this wonderful cup on an ANTIQUE TABLE and now there were white rings on the table!!  So of course, she was freaking out.  I told her to calm down and go get a jar of mayonnaise.  I told her to rub the mayo into the table and wait a few minutes.
After a few minutes one ring had disappeared and then a few minutes later the other ring disappeared too!  Like I told her, I thought everyone knew this trick.  I think my mom may have showed me this many years ago.
She told me she had not known about it before and then said "This is why I keep ya around."  ; )

THANK YOU!!! and no apparently not all of us know this tip. We have antique furniture (we received it from my hubby's parents when we got married. He grew up with it) Now we have 4 kids and minister to college students. There is always a mishap every few months. It is few and far between, but this is a wonderful tip. =0) Just joined your blog a couple of weeks ago...agreeing with your friend. =0)
