How can I get the shine back on wood furniture where a hot cup was placed?

There's a circle of dullness where a thin coffee cup with very hot coffee was placed on a shiny wood desk top. How do I go about getting the shine back?



Before trying any method, use furniture polish with lemon oil, (pledge/old english) it cleans and conditions wood. If the area still looks dull, put a small amount of toothpaste on a clean white cloth and wipe the area lightly with the grain, wipe off paste thoroughly (wiping with the grain) then buff with furniture polish that contains lemon oil.


It is really hard to get the ring shape on the table. There are products that Guardsman may offer in terms of taking the dark circle on the table.
