Toothpaste to Remove Stains From Wood


You know toothpaste helps clean your teeth, but it also can remove white water stains from wood surfaces. Water stains leave hazy marks that prove difficult to remove as they absorb into the wood. Toothpaste contains ingredients that pull the stain from the wood, and it also has enough abrasive consistency to loosen the stain without scratching the wood surface.

Things You'll Need

  • Cloths
  • Non-gel toothpaste
  • Wood conditioner
  • Moisten two clean cloths, and squeeze out the excess water.

  • Squeeze 1/2 inch of non-gel toothpaste onto one damp cloth.

  • Apply the toothpaste to the stains on the wood. Using rotating motions and light pressure, rub the toothpaste into the stains for 30 seconds to a minute.

  • Using the same circular motions, rub the second damp cloth on the wood to remove the toothpaste and the stain. Remove all traces of toothpaste from the wood.

  • Spray the wood with a wood conditioner. Wipe the conditioner from the wood with a soft cloth.

Tips & Warnings

  • Always use paste toothpaste, because the gel paste does not work on wood.
