Hey Mark just wondering how you went with your floor?

We haven't done anything with it. A few things we tried didn't seem to have any effect. The mark has faded a little but is still apparent. We think we will sand and polish all the floors next year anyway.

Hi, Do you still have the mark. You might try the old-fashioned way of removing watermarks from good timber furniture.

1.You need brown paper and a warm iron.

Puit your paper on the a small area of the mark, the size of your iron and then place your very warm BUT NOT HOT on the paper and hold it there for a few minutes at a time.

Keep checking how you are going. You should see the mark shrinking.

This has worked for me on my very good dining table etc.
