    Use petroleum jelly – Simply rub a little petroleum jelly onto the water marks and let it sit over night. You should be able to wipe the water stain away with the jelly the next morning.

  • Use toothpaste – Apply some non-gel toothpaste to the stain using a soft cloth and wipe it off with a damp cloth.
  • Use baking soda – Create a paste by combining baking soda with a teaspoon of water. Rub it into the water stain until it disappears – just don’t use too much water!
  • Use salt – Simply combine a teaspoon of salt with a couple of drops of water to create a paste. Rub it into the stain and use a sponge to work it over until it disappears.
