I like my dining room table. And I absolutely adore my teapot. But alas, the two of them don’t quite get along. When I set the hot teapot on the table (something that happens about once a day if all is right with the world), it has a tendency to leave white marks on the table. Now I’ve discovered that these marks come right out if I rub them with a walnut (no idea why, but seems to be true). But that’s a bit tedious if you do it too often. And of course I could just set a potholder or a folded up paper towel down first. But that’s also unreasonably irritating.
So I’ve decided to devise a more suitable solution. I have a closet full of woolly things, and woolly things are good at managing heat. This should be fun.
