    Does anyone know how to get rid of stains on varnish?

    I have a bottle of glass cleanser on my computer desk and when I picked it up there was a stain left behind. It has not lifted the varnish but the stain seems impossible to remove.
    I tried a bit of metal polish to take a thin layer off, but that does not work. Any body got any ideas without rubbing it down to the wood and re-varnishing?

    Try using toothpaste. I've used it on real wood applications before and it has removed coffee rings etc.

    Try, with care, very fine wirewool. Toothpaste looks a better option though. Try in an area you can't see first.

    Its still there with toothpaste, I'm wondering if the stuff has reacted with the cleaner.

    According to Nuts magazine....

    "Spread mayonnaise over the ring, then rub it clean with a dry cloth"

    Just as when you experiment with hamsters, i accept no responsibility for the outcome.
