    Hello everyone
    So, we are in a rented house and have given notice to leave. However in our kitchen next to the sink we have a pot for putting cleaned cutlery in and, I think, it has caused the attached image to happen. Now I say I think as we have only been in there since May last year and 9/10 use the dishwasher. Nothing specific was listed on the inventory as this mark being there apart from Water stains near the sink. I would like to err on the side of caution when it comes to this.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Hot iron over tissue can reduce the stain, keep it moving, you have moisture trapped near the surface which the heat will release.
    Would expect some wear and tear on a rental property.

    Definitely a water mark but was it there when you moved in?
    Likelihood is, the LL took photo's before you moved in as part of his inventory and evidence of any damage done when you leave.
    Ithink the only way to remove it completely would be to sand it back to bare wood and re-stain/varnish but you probably wouldn't be able to colour match exactly. Maybe give it a light sand with fine glasspaper and then apply a few coats of a stain/varnish that matches the original colour. You could test on an inconspicuous area out of sight until you are satisfied with the match.
    For future reference if you ever spill ANY water/liquid on a wooden worktop you must wipe it up immediately and dry with a soft cloth.
