・Soak a small piece of cotton cloth or tissue in water and place it on top of the dent.

Please do not do this on furniture with rough wooden surfaces.

 Stains may appear after water oozes out.

If the dent doesn't heal with just water after leaving it for a day, try ironing it for 1, 2, 3 seconds and see what happens.

Note: If you use an iron too much, the surface may become uneven and the color may fade, so please consider using it only on areas with severe dents. Steam×
