Hi I'm Ann Myrick and today I'm going to show you how to remove stains off your furniture. What you first need to do is determine what the stain is, is it a ring from a glass of water, is it grease, what is it? Once you determine more what it is then you can determine what it is that you need to do. I have some bad smudges and a little bit of a ring on my piano which is wood so what I am going to use and there are many commercial products that you can get of course but there are things in your refrigerator and in your cabinets that you can use also. Mayonnaise is known for being a great polisher because it has oil in it and so what I am going to use is I am just going to take a little bit in fact I have got too much, take a little bit of mayonnaise and I'm going to work with the smudge and I am just going to go back and forth circular and then with the grain and you'll see how it is just really really shining up. Then I will go back with a, I'm just going to flip this on the clean side and just really buff it well. A pecan if you have pecans and you break a pecan open and use the mean, a lot of times if you have a little smudge, if you have a water spot you can rub the pecan on the wood and the oil from the pecan will bring it right back, will erase the smudge and bring it right back to the way it should be. Again depending on what type of material your furniture is made out of you want to use the appropriate source so look on the back of the product just to be sure that what the product is matches what you are going to clean. This is Ann Myrick and that is how you clean stains off your furniture.
