Hi all

During Thanksgiving we put a hot dish on a cork-bottomed trivet on our sideboard. Some of the cork remained baked onto the table. Any suggestions for cleaning/removing this? No idea what the finish is on the antique sideboard.

I think I would try a tool like the Fein Multimaster with a scraper attachment. Those tools are amazing.

FYI – IMO, you don’t need the rather espensive Fein product. There are imitators that are almost as good and a lot cheaper. I use a Rockwell SoniCrafter.

Have your say...
