Iron Out Dents and Scratches Lay a damp

Iron Out Dents and Scratches
Lay a damp cloth over each bruise and press a hot iron down on the cloth. The steam causes the wood fibers to swell and fill the dent. Keep the iron pressed down until you hear steam and see it coming out of the cloth. For deeper dents that don’t disappear with the first ironing, push a pin into the area while it’s still damp. This will allow steam to penetrate a little more during a second ironing and swell the crushed wood fibers.
