Q: On a rainy night, I ordered takeout, and the plastic bag left a purple stain with the text on it (and the recycling symbol!) on my white lacquer coffee table! I tried removing it with cleanser and didn't make any progress. To salvage the table, will I have to re-lacquer it, or is there another way to remove the stain?
