There is nothing worse than accidentally putting down a hot cup of tea on your favorite antique wooden furniture. Although you might be in panic, relax! There are plenty of ways to get your wood back to it’s glory days with these simply hacks.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is the number 1 item you need to always have in your cleaning arsenal . Simply make a paste of 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of water and rub it on the water stain. Continue until the stain disappears, and it’ll be like it never happened!

Petroleum Jelly

This product is perfect for chapped lips and dry skin, but it can also help you with your water stains. Simply rub it onto the stain and leave it over night. Wipe it up well with a paper towel because it might be a little slimy, but in no time at all you will see that the stain disappears.

Salt

We often tend to ignore something as minor as the salt we consume. But the sodium content of salt has big implications on our health. . High levels of sodium in the blood causes water retention increasing the volume of blood. This translates to more work for the heart and increased stress on the blood vessels. This constant stress weakens the heart and may cause heart attacks. . I had switched to low sodium salt a long while ago, but recently I came across this new brand called @lunn_salt . It has way less sodium than the most commonly available salt brands. It also has potassium, magnesium and trace minerals that normal salt doesn't. . @lunn_salt is very transparent about how the salt is harvested. Unlike sea salt which has micro plastics because of high water pollution levels, @lunn_salt is made by evaporating mineral rich ground water in the deserts of Rajasthan. The salts are harvested in two phases- summer and winter. It is also a certified fair trade brand. It means the harvesters are paid a decent wage. . In case you're wondering, it doesn't taste very different from the salt we consume. In fact, it only has a slight tang because of the potassium and leaves no aftertaste. The packaging is also very sustainable. The salts come in refillable grinders- a great initiative to reduce costs and plastic usage. If you have read this far, I would recommend that you taste the difference yourself. These salts are available on @amazondotin and @bigbasketcom . They are priced between Rupees 29 -99. .

Salt is a great solution for water stains if you don’t have any other materials around, since every household has salt. All you have to do is mix 1 teaspoon of salt with just a few drops of water to form a paste. Rub the paste onto the stain with a cloth or sponge until the stain is no longer there.
