This method may sound a little weird to most of you but I promise it works! After we first got married I was on the hunt one day to find something that would remove water spots from my table. After trying a few different things I cam across a phrase in an old book that said to try mayonnaise. I grabbed a bottle of the plain from-the-store stuff and tested it out. To my disbelief it worked! Not only did it take away the water spots but it made my table nice and shiny.
Since mayo is so expensive I rarely buy a bottle from the grocery store for this cleaning habit but I often find it at my local discount grocery store for $0.50 for an expired bottle (it doesn't matter if it's in date, you aren't eating it!)
*Note: my table is made from real wood.
Here's a before and after shots.
I wipe the mayo all over the table. Then with a wet rag I wipe it completely off. Then I dry it with a dry towel. None of the mayo is actually left on the table, it just leaves it nice and shiny! Make sure to get it all off otherwise it will be a little greasy.
Have you ever tried this crazy trick? Do you think you will?
