That is probably the best one, below. However, here is a couple of non-conventional methods: First, rub a pecan over the scratch and then polish. Sometimes the oil from the pecan helps quite a bit. Another, when all else fails, get a furniture marker the same color as the scratched furniture and fill in the scratch. Can't find a furniture marker?.... use a brown sharpie. When all else fails, sand and re-finish...

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 KJV

Old English Furniture polish has always worked for me. It covers so many scratches and a bottle lasts a long time. It is oily though and what I do is rub a liberal amount on - let is set for an hour or so and then take a clean cloth and rub it down again. It really works!

Depending on the wood and color, you can use a warm tea bag or a walnut. Rub the meat of the nut into the scratch. If the scratch is deep only refinishing with take it out. The above methods are only to hide the marks.

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

A lot depends on the material of the table. If it is solid wood the easiest would be to sand it down and refinish it. Deep scratches (that can be felt, not just seen) will not disappear otherwise. If the table is not solid wood you could use wood putty and then stain those spots. There are staining pens that are made for wood which look just like markers that come in different colors.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

My boss scratched his table real bad - long, long scratches on the table. We tried furniture polish and that just made the scratches shiny. Then he tried using a marker (yes, I advised against it) and now the table also has marker on it. Any ideas how to get rid of these??
Thanks in advance!
