Have you ever wondered what people do when they are retired for excitement??? Yesterday was a very exciting day for me ..... I ironed my dining room table.
No I am not losing my mind or going senile -- shame on you all for thinking that!!
The problem with my table is it marks easily. I put table cloths on it -- hot pads -- anything and everything to protect the finish.
BUT things happen and marks started to appear. White marks. I knew they were water marks / heat marks. I tried every product known to man to remove them with no success.
Now I am retired I have all sorts of time to find a cure for my dining room table. I googled it and have tried just about everything that it suggested....... except for one...... iron the marks.
Yesterday as a last resort I brought out the iron.
This was the first mark I worked on.....
the instructions said to put the iron on dry -- hot and just iron the marks. I didn't much like that idea so I put a towel down first.
After a few minutes of ironing the table I pulled back the towel to see if it was working
I was encouraged so I continued on.........
And the end result...........
Now I just have to work on all the other spots ......... but I'll save that excitement for another day. There's only so much excitement I can handle in a day!
