White out or correction fluid is great for fixing mistakes but not so great when it gets onto wood. It leaves a white stain that dries to the touch. There are ways to remove it from wood but sometimes it can be a challenge to do so. I would test a small area first and would not attempt to remove from antique pieces.
How to Remove White Out from Wood
1. Spray a little bit of WD-40 onto the stain and let it sit for a minute.
2. Using a credit card or something similar carefully scrape off what you can without damaging the wood.
3. Then, take a rag and gently wipe off the excess stain.
If it doesn’t come off the first time, try to apply WD-40 to the stain again and gently rub with the rag. If you have unfinished you can use sandpaper to sand out the stain.
