How to remove aphid honeydew on a finished piece of wood furniture? I don't want to hurt the finish.

Expert Response

The dark stain is mildew that is growing on the sugars.  A chlorine based cleaner should take care of it nicely.   But I would try the cleaner solution on an small area on the back of the furniture to see the effects on the finish.
