    We just rescued a gorgeous blonde laminate mid mod telephone table and I’m hoping someone may know how to remove what I believe is a mold-like discoloration? Also, it looks like a box from a kids toy got wet and sat on the surface of the table. I used a mixture of white vinegar and water with a paper towel to scrape off most of it. Will any of those products listed above help me fix these issues?

    Thank you!!

    I used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on my 10 year old Formica Counter tops. It took the shine off and left a definite mark that is still very noticable-3 years later.
