So I decided to do my first entry about something that happened on the "first" day of the week. It was Sunday and I had put our trusty crock-pot to work (as it works for me almost every Sunday since everyone is famished by the time we get home from church). I put a towel down on the table before dishing out the chicken - the towel was worthless as you can see:
It was quite upsetting. Eric tells me of this guy he met that does furniture re-surfacing...we think "is the table even worth what he will probably charge?" After a day or two of looking at this hideous spot, I decided to google some home remedies. A post about an iron and white t-shirt kept popping up - at this point I have nothing to lose! Ready, Set...my logical side is screaming "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH AN IRON ON YOUR TABLE!" After-all, isn't that how the spot got there in the first place???
What did we do before "google"...a re-finishing man that would have probably brought his iron and white t-shirt and charged me $100.
Just a note, before trying this at home, I think the key was having an iron with the "steam" feature. The idea is to get the moisture back into the table. From what I read anyways, I am no expert!
A little polish and we are as good as new!
