Hi Patti,

Unfortunately, since the finish was gone, the mark would have been in the wood anyhow (as opposed to moisture trapped in the finish) and would likely require bleaching.

You should be able to find a number of D-I-Y sites through the search engines that outline the process, though it's a delicate process and may best be left to a professional.

As a "plug" for Wood Elixir, the product also protects in addition to cleaning and restoring. Treating your wood furniture to a light application once a year will maintain the beauty and help protect against future damage.


: I recently inherited a kitchen storage cabinet. The top had been damaged from what looks like water in one spot and the finish was gone. I used lemon oil on it and it went from gray to dark. Can your product help me now and do I need to bleach the wood first to lighten it back up? Thanks!
