Things To Consider Before Cleaning

Before you start cleaning all the watermark stains that you can find, it is important to first check if you should avoid using certain cleaning agents on the surfaces that have the watermark stains. You would not want to remove the watermark but end up with damaged furniture or surfaces. A water ring stain in wood furniture is common, and it is caused by chilled drinks being placed directly on the furniture (coffee table, etc.) without any coasters. This can be identified by a faint white stain around the bottom of the cup.

2 Common Agents That Can Remove Watermark Stains


The solution to cleaning watermark stains on wood surfaces or furniture is a simple daily household item: toothpaste. However, do take note that if the water ring is dark in color, then the water has most probably seeped into the wood. In this scenario, it is best to engage a furniture cleaning expert to do the rectification work, as it will be complicated to remove the stain on your own.


What other common places would you find watermarks? The stains will probably also be found on steel, marble surfaces, or your shower screen. In this case, fill a bottle with vinegar and spray on the stains, letting it rest on the surface for at least 15-20 minutes. After the vinegar has broken down the water stains into white particles, use a damp cloth to wipe the area, and voila, your house is as good as new.

There might be other household products that can effectively remove water stains around your house, but the two mentioned above are two of the most common household products used in cleaning, especially for stain removal.

Disclaimer: It is important to check with the relevant professionals if the household agent that you will be using to clean the water stain will damage your tiles or surface, as some of the chemicals in the household products could have adverse effects on your furniture or surface.
