If you are like me, then you have probably done this a few times and cringed at the aftermath of ironing on your wood table without your ironing mat..
They’re not only a result of heat on wood by ironing, but also from heat off of your hot coffee cup and, well, anything hot placed on the table without a coaster.

Luckily, there is an easy solution to get rid of these heat spots:TOOTHPASTE!
Yes, toothpaste! 🙂 I like to use those little trial sized toothpaste samples I accumulate over time from fairs.

What you need :
– A wood table with heat spots
– toothpaste
– wipes or paper towels (I like to use Clorox wet wipes to clean up the toothpaste)

How to remove heat spots off of your wood table:

1. Locate your heat spot and apply a thin to medium layer of toothpaste. I just squeeze out toothpaste onto my finger and spread it over the heat spot. I’m very generous with the amount of toothpaste I apply to my wood table because I iron heavily and create big heat spots.

2. You don’t need to leave the toothpaste on for long, I start wiping it off after a minute or so. I grab a Clorox wet wipe and wipe off the toothpaste.

3. After wiping off the toothpaste , I had a little water excess from the wet wipes, I simply wiped it dry with a viva paper towel. If you don’t use Clorox wet wipes, you can simply use a wet paper towel or wet wash cloth to remove the toothpaste and a dry paper towel to dry your table off after you’re done.

And that’s how you can remove those pesky heat spots off of your wood table! 🙂
Please note that you may need to reapply toothpaste to a stubborn heat spot. Just follow these steps again to fully remove big heat spots. 🙂

Thank you for reading my posts and following my blog!
I’d love to hear if this worked for you, leave comments below! 🙂

Toodles for now,
Diana and Ray ❤

  1. Super cool! This is good to know. I don’t have a lot of wood in my apartment because I am afraid of the upkeep. But not anymore! Will you have any scrap booking in the future?

    • It’s such a frugal way to care for your furniture and it uses up those little trial sized toothpaste tubes 🙂
      Thank you for viewing my blog and posts!
      I certainly aim to post about scrapbooking in the near future 🙂 I’m just getting my crafty room set up and getting some ongoing quilting and cross stitching projects going and I will soon post about scrapbooking 🙂 you like to scrapbook?
      I’m addicted to those colored and glitter covered pages on sale at Joann’s 😛
      Stay tuned for my upcoming wizard of oz quilting project that I will scrapbook along side it! 🙂
      I hope you enjoy it!

  2. I needed this for my mom’s wood table. Me and Vanessa sometimes forget use a coaster with hot drinks and there is a spot or two on my table. Thank you!

    • I’m glad I could offer a frugal solution 🙂
      I hope it works for you!
      I use this often because I ,now, leave my tablecloth off entirely(ray likes to climb the tablecloth, pull it onto the floor and drag it around, so I just put my tablecloth away) and don’t always use coasters or placemats.
      And toothpaste comes in handy 🙂
      Thanks for reading cousin<3
      Nothing better than your family supporting you<3

    • Thank you 🙂
      This wood table is my boyfriends parents table and I try to not use it when I craft, but when I do, I cringe at the aftermath of it all.. And well, I finally found a frugal way to remove the heatspots 🙂
      I hope this works for you as we’ll ❤
