Instructions

  1. 1

    Combine 1 tbsp toothpaste with 1 tbsp baking soda to form a thick, gritty paste.

  2. 2

    Put the paste onto a clean cloth. Apply the mixture to the moisture stains on the veneer.

  3. 3

    Work the cloth in a circular motion over the stain for 10 minutes to buff it out. Wipe the excess paste away with a clean paper towel.

  4. 4

    Apply a wood polish directly to the affected area. Buff the polish in with another clean cloth. The stain will be gone.
