I have a 30 yr. old cedar chest. SOMEONE set a HOT pizza box on it. Now it has a milky looking area where the box sat. I have tried using a Orange cleaner/wood restorer but it didn't help any. Any ideas??? Thanks, Anni

Try one of theses: Rub them with toothpaste on a damp cloth, or paste furniture polish, any mild abrasive, or oil. Appropriate abrasives are ashes, salt, soda, or pumice: suitable oils are olive oil, petroleum jelly, cooking oil, or lemon-oil furniture polish

Turtle Wax Polishing Compound and Scratch Remover will do the job...

Thanks George. Can you tell me where to locate this Turtle wax? I looked in the furniture polish & the hardware furniture refinishing departments. The only wax I found was Johnsons Paste wax for floors. Thanks Anni
