Iron Dents Out of Wood Furniture?

Stop hiding those dents in your table and remove them.

Have you ever dropped something on your table and left behind an unsightly dent? You may have thought that you would have to live with that blemish for the rest of your table’s life, but thanks to this handy tip from Apartment Therapy you can get dents out of wood, whether it is a table from IKEA or hard wood floors.

To get rid of the wooden scars on your favorite piece of furniture, all you need is a little water, a paper towel and an iron. Test this technique on a hidden area first; some finishes can turn white when they come in contact with steam.

  1. Plug your iron in and set it to high.
  2. Wet the dented area.
  3. Place a wet paper towel over the area.
  4. Using a slow circular motion, iron the paper towel to create steam.
  5. Continue this for 3-5 minutes.
