  • I've heard WD40 (the stuff you use for squeaky doors) takes care of all sorts of marks (as well as other uses). I haven't had to try it since I was told about it's magic "powers", but I have it filed in my memory bank for future reference.
    Careful with solvents like nail polish remover as it can damage the finish on wood...

  • DON'T use a magic eraser on your table if it has a finish on it. I learned the hard way because it took the finish off my table, when I used it for markers. The best I was able to do to not continue ruining my finish was to use a wet rag and scrub hard. It didn't completely get the marker off, but you can barely see it now.
