  • You can also use some vegetable oil. Apply a few drops on a soft cloth and rub the surface of the furniture.
  • If you have put a hot iron kettle on the table, take a cotton cloth, put some salt on it, soak it with some vegetable oil and rub in a circular motion until the spot disappears. Old stains can be covered with a mixture of salt and vegetable oil and rub with a woolen cloth after 2-3 hours.

However, there are a few great ideas, which can help you if this incident happens and you have to perform a cleaning procedure at home.


Firstly you will need to remove as much of the spillage as possible. You can do that using a spoon or a flat knife.
