So how do you tidy these surfaces up? First, take vinegar and mix olive oil in it. Then rub it on the stain and wipe it with a clean cloth. Apply a wet cloth over the stain and bring out your hair-dryer to dry the surface. Then, refresh the surface with a coat of olive oil and your wooden table will be clear in no time.
