    Hi,
    We have just bought a Dinning room table and chairs, the table has some 'Sticky' marks on it where I guess the price was, we got a discount! But how to I remove the 'Sticky' marks without damaging the table?

    I think it's made out of Sheesham wood (Indian Rosewood).

    Thanks

    Steve

    Lighter fuel is petrol, do not use on furniture, as it may soften the varnish/shellac finish, and will certainly remove any applied waxes.

    Rub wax polish quite vigorously on the affected area, repeat until gone.

    Thanks for that, and the 'Save' on the Lighter Fuel.
    Should I use a clear furniture wax?

    I would, and then finish off the whole surface to match.

    Hi Guys,
    Just to say, I bought some

    'Lord Sheraton Caretaker Wood Balsam'

    I think from ASDA, i was a little concerned as it says

    'With pure beeswax,Pine Turpentine & Linseed oil'

    The 'Pine Turpentine' was a bit concerning, but it's done the job, so thanks for everyone's help.

    Who owned the furniture before? The lads from the inbetweeners?
