I've had a little accident with my beech/laminate counters I took a hot metal coffee pot off the hob and put it down on the counter....
It has left a round ring, not black but just a darker colour than the rest of the counter.
I've tried Jif etc but it wont shift and looks a mess.
Anyone got any ideas?
I spoke to my kitchen fitter and he said that it shouldnt really have marked if it was less than boiling....
Also, anyone got any recommendations for a good, reliable local handyman- I've got a few things need sorting out.
I seem to remember a similar thread from before, perhaps you can find it.
I had just the same thing, lodger with hot coffee maker. It produced a dark brown ring that would not come off with various cleaning procedures. I have now nearly got rid of it by very, very carefully scraping away the darkened, more crumbly damaged area with a scalpel, leaving an almost invisible ring the same colour as the rest of the surface but with a more matt texture.
Oh dear Sarah, silly billy, but those wooden tops are vulnerable...I think you will find that "patch polishing" will look just that. If I were you I'd live with the mark and realise you'll have some history in your home...kind of nice!
