First, let's take a small nicks and scrapes. They can usually applies easily with a product you can buy at any home improvement store, made specifically for this purpose. You can also use some shoe Polish or use a Sharpie. Color in zero and watch it disappear. You'll be surprised how well it works. You can also use an empty shoe Polish applicator and fill it with a spot that fits your finish. This process is just like polishing a pair of shoes.

Water stains can be maddening when you find them on your accent table. However, once they are fully dried, soft cloth and dab some mayonnaise in it. Rub it in place, until it disappears. Use real mayonnaise. Miracle whip can be severe at Sandwich, but he would not remove the stain.

Colored rings can be removed with a little pasta. Rub this until loop disappears. You can also use the cigarette ashes in vegetable oil. But if you don't smoke, go with toothpaste.

Candle wax can really ruin the finish on accent tables. Delete, but it's easier than you think. If Candle Wax on the surface, let cool and harden fully. Place ice on it, so it gets brittle. Scratch, then a plastic putty knife (not metal). Polish it a bit to remove any remaining wax.

Of course the best way to fix the damaged table emphasis is to prevent it to begin with: it's always a good idea to have a lot of coasters around when they are guests post their drinks coasters instead focus on your tables.

When you are entertaining, you want to make sure you do not place any dish hot on unprotected table. Always place a hot pad, stand, a pair of oven mitts or thick towel under the hot plate to prevent burning and marring.

If you use candles to set the mood, make sure that they have a great base for them. If not, place the candle holder dish or saucer or instead use Hurricane lamps, hot wax doesn't spill and on top of your expensive accent tables.

You shouldn't ever Polish or wax on your wood with cheap commercial products available in supermarkets. They can damage the surface or just add a waxy film layer, which would collect dust. If you really like the look of Polish, use lemon oil for one of the three parts of olive oil. He will do the job well and leave pleasantly lemon scent in the room.

Regular dusting is usually all you need to keep your table, looking terrific. If they really need deeper cleaning use a very mild soap dish that is soluble in water. You don't have a lot of SOAP. According to old commercial television "a little dab will do ya".

With only a little care and some minor maintenance when your tables get Nick or scratch you will be able to keep your furniture looking new for years to come.
