A friend just called me with a question that I don’t have an answer for…so, of course, I turn to the experts. He placed a candle on the edge of a light colored entertainment cabinet. Later, he noticed that the color from the candle wax leached into the wood (not from melted wax), so now he has a red circle on the finish of the wood. He didn’t know what type of finish is on the furniture. Any ideas as to how to remove the stain? Thanks.

try the cofee tea stain removal trick it works great on tea stains on wood.Take a piece of absorbant brown paper or any absorbant print free paper lay it dry over the area and run over with a medium clothes iron.Then finish of by doing the same thing with some oil on the paper to reinstate oil to the wood for coffee or tea staind do it with just oiled paper not dry good luck I think it might work and it’s the best I have to offer.
