Remove Water Marks From Wood With A Hair Dryer

Nothing ruins the look of beautiful wood furniture quite like a nasty water mark. While we all try our hardest to protect the surface, there just never seem to be enough coasters, are we right? sometimes we just don’t have enough coasters to place everyone’s drink upon. Luckily, you don’t have to live with the unsightly stain because How To Clean Stuff found a great way to remove water marks from wood... with a hair dryer.

Set the hair dryer on medium heat and hold it two inches away from the stain. As you apply heat, use a cloth or napkin to buff away the mark. Continue wiping until the surface is blemish-free.

We did a little digging and found bloggers from Homemade Mamas came across this unfortunate situation. It took them about 20 minutes of applying heat but according to the post, the hair dryer was the only trick that actually worked.
