Is it teething time for your little one?
Did someone forget to use a coaster?
Grab any of these household products and you'll be able to easily buff out those water stains.
1. Heat
This trick can be a little time consuming, but works a treat on water stains. Grab a hair dryer, put it on medium heat, and aim it at the stain at around six inches away from the spot. Work on it until the stain disappears.
2. Salt
Make watermarks left from glasses or bottles disappear by mixing one teaspoon of salt with a few drops of water to form a paste. Gently rub the paste onto the ring with a soft cloth or sponge and work it over the spot until it’s gone.
3. Petroleum Jelly
Your most recent party left lots of watermark rings on your wood furniture. To make them disappear, apply petroleum jelly - such as shop bought Vaseline - and let it sit overnight. In the morning, wipe the watermark away with the jelly.
4. Toothpaste
To get rid of those tell-tale watermark rings left by sweating beverages, gently rub some non-gel toothpaste on the wood with a soft cloth. Then wipe it off with a damp cloth and let it dry before applying furniture polish. For even stronger cleaning power, mix equal parts white toothpaste and baking soda. Rub the paste parallel to the wood grain, wipe it off, and then polish with lemon oil. 
5. Vinegar
To remove white rings left by wet glasses on wood furniture, mix equal parts vinegar and olive oil and apply it with a soft cloth while moving with the wood grain. Use another clean, soft cloth to shine it up. To get white water rings off leather furniture, dab them with a sponge soaked in full-strength white vinegar.
