    In the downstairs bathroom there is this tongue and groove wood on the wall, I don't know what kind it is, but it looks simular to hardwood flooring kind of wood. Except it's raw, not painted or anything.
    Is there a way to get all the water stains off? The water got on by brushing my teeth, shaking my hands dry, and other careless things I try not to do with water.
    It's looking really bad now, not serious, but you can notice them if you cock your head a certain way.
    If I sanded it I think it would be more noticable than if I left it be. I could always sand every square inch and paint with with a clear coat or something, but that takes time, which I don't have a lot of with school.

    Suggestions?

    If the wood is unstained and unfinished, you can use wood bleach to remove or minimize dark stains. Use a sponge to rub it on the wood. BE CAREFUL, don't get it on anything else, or it will get bleached too.

    Do I have to apply it to the whole strip of wood, or will the bleached area blend in with the unbleached area?

    Water and vinegar? 50/50 mix or? Will I have to do the whole strip of wood or will it blend in with the untouched wood after it's dried?
