Removing white hot coffee marks of a wooden mahogany table

I was upset to find a white mark on my expensive dining table.  I don’t know how it happened, as I never leave hot plates or cups on it.  I tried to polish the white mark out and it only made matters worse.  I then started searching on the internet.  I found a video on youtube telling me to use a cloth and a hot iron.

Do this at your own risk, but if you have nothing to lose, it maybe worth a go.  

Warm the iron up to medium.  Use a cloth the thickness of a tea towel.  The smoother the cloth the better.   Then iron over the tea towel in circles for a very short while.  I used a few jets of steam as well.  It’s best always exercising caution as this is trial and error.

You can now see the before and after picture.

I can see a slight mark, that I will remove with a less harsh method.  I don’t want to damage the good work I have already done.

All the best
