Hard water stains and elbow grease require, most of the times, a more abrasive furniture polish cleaner than the usual ones. Put some rubbing alcohol on the spot and then use a piece of cloth to rub the area Check to see if it has disappeared.
If this doesn’t work, you can use a mixture of oil and cigarette ash. Put the mixture on the spot and then use a piece of cloth to rub the area. Remove it and then polish the furniture with some wax.
Leather stains are even easier to remove. You need to use sponge, not too dry and not too soaked, and just rub the stained area. Then let it dry and then use a little shoe polish or special polish for leather materials.
For fabric stains, use a little water and soap and rub the area. Then put a piece of cloth on the spot and then just iron it out. Don’t forget to rinse the place after you soap it. You can also use a little white vinegar before you rinse it and then let it air dry.
Wipe the place with a clean towel or paper towel soaked in white vinegar.
