How to Remove Water Marks from Pine Wood with Blush Eraser, Denatured Alcohol and Paste Wax
posted on April 1, 2009 by Michael Dresdner

Q: I have a beautiful pine dresser that was located by a window where the top got wet in the rain. Now there’s a big water mark in the center. I don’t want to damage the finish or refinish the entire top. How can I fix it?

Behlen Jet Spray Blush Eraser Blush eraser like this Behlen Jet Spray reflows lacquer, pushing out trapped moisture, without changing the color of the finish.

A: I’ll give you two options. The easiest fix is to simply spray the white water mark with Jet Spray™ Blush Eraser, sold in aerosol cans at woodworking specialty stores. Another method is to wipe the area with a cloth dampened with denatured alcohol. Make it damp, not fully wet, or the alcohol could etch the finish. Damp means “about as wet as a healthy dog’s nose.” Then, add a coat of paste wax to restore the sheen and help protect the top from water in the future.
