A tray that unbeknownst to me was sopping wet underneath was left over the weekend on my coffee table and it's left a horrendous big square white water mark where the tray was now it's dried out.

How on earth do I get rid of this stain? Help please!!!!

Tea towel over it and then iron over tea towel on a low heat - it worked for me

I've used Vaseline successfully. I think any oil will work. Maybe be careful it doesn't just leave a big oily mark though...

Thanks I'll try the tea towel iron!

And the Vaseline if that doesn't work - I'll test a bit underneath first though

Ironing works beautifully - no steam, iron on medium heat, and rub/polish with the tea towel or ironing cloth as you go. Watch some videos on YouTube first.
