Wet glasses plus wood furniture is a risky combination. Sure, coasters exist for this very reason, and yet, somehow, your tables still aren't immune to water rings. No big deal; just reach for the mayonnaise.

That's what Kim Myles suggests, anyway. A designer for the program "Home Made Simple," Kim says that rings that form in wood furniture can be buffed right out with a little mayo.

Here's how: Place a dollop of mayonnaise on the stain. Let it sit for an hour -- this is key, Kim points out -- then buff it with a rag. 

"Let it soak in for a bit and I promise you, your furniture will feel good as new," she says.

"Home Made Simple" airs Saturdays at 9 a.m. ET on OWN.
