I really hope you guys can help me with this.
I have an old table that looks like cherry or mahogany that is pretty worn and has almost no protective finish on it anymore.
What has happened is some hot, cooked ears of corn were put on a pot holder and set on the table. A glass dish holding warm pulled pork also was set on the table, this one without a pot holder under it because it wasn’t that hot.
When the pot holders were removed, big white spots remained.
I’ve tried regular cleaning stuff and mineral spirits with no success. I have not tried lacquer thinner or acetone for fear of making the problem worse.
Is there anything I can do to remove the spots without resorting to refinishing?
