How to remove ring marks

Now the Christmas tree is down and the decorations are back in the loft, our homes may need a little TLC to bring them back to their best. The last few weeks have probably brought extra visitors and guests to your home this means lots of cups of tea and coffee which can lead to the dreaded ring mark! There is no need to fear though. Ring marks can be easily removed from your Myakka furniture with our simple guide, some beeswax polish, wire wool and a soft cloth. We always recommend using coasters but sometimes accidents happen!

 We recommend using Mylands Traditional Wax Polish for keeping your Myakka furniture looking its best. The Antique Mahogany wax is perfect for our Sheesham and Mango ranges as the slight colour in the wax will maintain the colour and finish of the Mallani, Thakat, Chandra, Hathi and Orissa ranges. The clear wax is perfect for the Surin and Khimsar ranges as it will maintain the finish but won’t add to the colour at all. As well as helping to remove ring marks, Mylands Wax is perfect for the general care of your furniture. It feeds the wood and gives your furniture a lovely natural lustre.

If you have any ring marks or any other marks caused by liquid then follow these steps and it should disappear!
  1. Start with a very fine grade wire wool, we recommend a 0000 grade.
  2. Using the wire wool, rub the ring mark and surrounding area down, rubbing the furniture in the same direction as the grain of the wood.
  3. Once the ring mark has been removed, use a soft cloth to apply some Mylands Wax to the area,  rubbing in a circular motion.
  4. Leave for a few minutes to really sink in and then buff off with a soft cloth. This step is really important and this will remove any residue and will give your furniture a lovely lustre.
