Allow the Wite-Out to dry completely. Use the edge of a coin or a dull putty knife to gently scrape off as much of the Wite-Out as possible. Be careful not to damage the wood.


Apply a small amount of banana oil to a cotton ball. Test the banana oil on a hidden area of the wood to make sure it doesn’t remove the finish. Gently wipe off the remaining Wite-Out with the cotton ball. Repeat until the Wite-Out is no longer present. If the banana oil does not remove the Wite-Out, try using a water displacement product (such as WD40). Apply the water displacement product to a clean cloth, and scrub the Wite-Out until is is completely removed.


Clean the wood using a wood cleaner that is safe for your wood furniture or flooring. Dry well with a towel.
