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

    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.
