Answer:

Try this trick on how to remove water stains on furniutre…lay a dish cloth over the water mark and, with an iron on a low setting, iron over the dish cloth for 30 – 60 seconds. Check the stain. If there’s no effect, increase the heat on the iron and try it again. This often requires the iron to be on the cotton setting to work, but it’s best to start at a low heat and work your way up.

    I tried this and it works. It took longer than I thought, but it did work. Very hot iron. Clean dry cotton T-shirt between the iron and wood. Makes sense that if there is extra moisture in the wood, heat would draw it out and put it in the clean T-shirt. Anyway, it works like a charm.
