Since ironing caused the problem on my red cherry triple dresser, I was gunshy to use that method to fix the damage (the surface had been covered with a flat of wood covered with a towel, still don't know how this happened). Another fix caught my attention. I cracked open a walnut and rubbed with the grain, a total of maybe six minutes, finishing with old cotton undies. Beautiful!! And, no risk of further damage.
