Easy Furniture Care How To Remove Ring Marks

Tuesday, 10 January 2017

Looking to remove ring marks from your lovely wooden furniture? Don't fear - our guide will help you remove those pesky water stains in no time! Now the festive season is over it is often the case that our homes need a little extra TLC.  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 dreaded water stains and ring marks!
Now is a great time to give your furniture a little care to bring it back to its best. This guide is our tried and tested method. Making it easy to remove water stains from your furniture.


We recommend always using coasters, but sometimes accidents happen! No need to fear though - removing water stains and ring marks from your Myakka furniture is easy with our simple guide. You'll need beeswax polish, wire wool and a soft cloth. We recommend using Mylands Traditional Wax Polish for keeping your Myakka furniture looking its best.

The Antique Mahogany wax is perfect for our Sheesham ranges as the slight colour in the wax will maintain the colour and finish of the MallaniThakatJasmeen and Hathi ranges. The clear wax is perfect for the SurinStonemill and the tops of the Milborne 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. Additionally, it feeds the wood and gives your furniture a lovely natural lustre.

Mylands Wax - Remove Ring Marks

The 4 simple steps to remove ring marks:

  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.  Always rub the furniture in the same direction as the grain of the wood.
  3. Once the ring mark or water stain has been removed, use a soft cloth to apply some wax to the area, rubbing in a circular motion.
  4. Leave for 20-30 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.
On the other hand, if you would like to see a video of the technique in action; our YouTube Channel has helpful tips and tricks for keeping your furniture in excellent condition.

Behind the scenes of our Spring photography shoot

Tuesday, 3 January 2017

Today we're taking you behind the scenes of our most recent photoshoot. Every December, we battle through the cold and grey weather to spend a week or so on location completing photography for our new Spring catalogue. This December we spent six days in two beautiful homes taking some striking new images of some Myakka classics. Plus we have new additions ready for their debut in March 2017.

One of the most difficult things to do is create a spring look in December - especially when it is rather grey outside. However, with the aid of some clever lighting and some spring flowers, we think we have achieved some lovely pictures.

Behind the scenes - the team

The team worked hard to take as many photographs as possible; it's important for us to capture the natural grain detail and colour of the wood of our furniture. Plus, there are lots of new accessories to be photographed too!

The new catalogue will be ready in March and will feature additional pieces in our Mallani, Jasmeen and Thakat ranges and great new accessories too. There will also be two exclusive new ranges making their first appearance in March… watch this space for more details!

Once again, we worked with the very talented photographer David McDowall; we've worked with David now for a number of shoots. We always try hard to capture the detail of the furniture in a real setting; it can take time to capture the perfect image, with lots of prop swapping in the process!

The Creative team is now busy working hard to turn all this hard work into a beautiful catalogue full of exciting new pieces designed especially for you. Don’t miss out… if you’re not already on the Myakka mailing list, make sure you sign up so you’re included in the first mailing of the new catalogue hot off the press in March.
