Furniture Repair: Water Damage

A few weeks back I bought an amazing looking dresser off of Craigslist.  The only problem was that it had some serious water damage and a few scuffs.  I got a great deal because of its condition, but was worried that I wouldn't be able to make it look presentable.  At first, I tried a simple Murphy's Wood Cleaner.  Although it made it shinier, it still had a ton of water spots.  Then, a wonderful Lowe's employee told me that I should try Homax White Ring Remover.  It is a cloth soaked in a miracle solution that you rub on to your furniture and then wipe off.  I only had to use one cloth for my entire dresser which meant that for under $4 I was able to turn my dresser from a disaster to looking like new!  I couldn't recommend this product more.


Stay tuned for the "Before and After." Polishing the hardware this week!

  3. Cool stuff! It amazingly cleaned the signs of water damage on the furniture. I would suggest this repair kit to my friend that has a lot of water damaged furniture. She’s planning to throw them all away. I guess this would help her save money on buying new furniture.

  4. Oh, nice! The picture clearly shows that the product you used was effective. When it comes to my furniture, I rely only on these types of product. Before I throw away water-damaged items, I see first if I can do something to recover them. Through the help of a product like this, furniture would still be functional to you.
