How to Get White Marks off Dark Wood

This REALLY works!  It so works!  I couldn't believe it, but my curiosity got me.  It all started when someone in my home (who shall remain nameless), ME, put a serving plate on the table.  I did not pay too much attention to the fact that the potholder was a bit damp.  Well, it left a white ghost mark on my dining table.  I about died!

Well, I had once heard that ash, yes...ash from your grill will get rid of the mark.  So, I marched out to the barbecue grill (got some nicely charred ash) and brought it in.  I shook the ash onto the spot and rubbed it in with a soft cloth.  Sure enough...the mark disappeared.  I topped it off with a little olive oil because olive oil is good for everything, ya'll! 

I am happy, the kids are happy, the whole world is now happy because my table is restored!
