This is the 'before.' It isn't a true before because I tried it once before I took any pictures. It was full of water rings and very discolored. There were 2 deep ones toward the front of the table that lingered after the first application:
I covered the water rings and let sit just long enough to put the baby down for a nap:
Then I wiped the mayo off and used the remaining residue to wipe down the rest of the table. Added benefit is that it revitalized the rest of the wood. I then wiped the surface down with a wet rag to get rid of the mayo smell (not a good scent for a living room).
Voila! A revitalized, water ring-free table!
It turns out this crazy condiment also cleans crayon from walls (but not kitchen cabinets which I did try), fingerprints from stainless steel (success) and kills head lice. I didn't have try this last one thankfully. Little boys smelling of mayo is the last thing I need.
So anyway give it a shot on your own water rings! Not curing cancer but pretty cool nonetheless!
