I don’t know about you, but I have several pieces of furniture in my home with white rings. When I saw a post with tips on how to remove them from the No.1 DIY home improvement project site, the Family Handy Man, I was curious to find out if it was truly something I could do myself or it was going to be too complicated and better left to the pros.
Removing the white rings with their tips seems easy enough, and I am planning on trying it on one of our upcoming winter week ends. Hope to find the products at one of our great hardware stores in Marin County. For now, the weather is too nice to stay inside.
According to the article, white rings can be easy to get rid of, or they can be a real nightmare. First, slather the ring with petroleum jelly and let it sit overnight. The oil from the petroleum jelly will often penetrate the finish and remove the ring or at least make it less visible.
If that doesn’t work, you can try a product such as Homax White Ring Remover (about $6 through the Family Handy Man’s affiliation with amazon.com) or Liberon Ring Remover (about $22 at Rockler, Woodcraft or through their affiliation with amazon.com). They often work but may change the sheen. If these fixes don’t work, consult a pro to see what your other options are.
