The support explains, "The marks can be caused by oils diffusing between the silicone base and the table surface", the support page reads.
Pocket-Lint founder Stuart Miles told BBC that the HomePod left a white mark on his kitchen worktop after just being on there for 20 minutes. If a white ring has been formed on your furniture, it is best that you let it be as it is or risk further damage to the wood.
If the issue is as common as it appears to be among speakers (and HomePod is only getting the heat because it's receiving Apple-level attention), ideally the hope is that Apple can innovate in this space and produce a solution that sounds good while not damaging common surfaces. Apple believes that the ring stains are caused by some sort of chemical reaction with certain wood surfaces treated with oil or wax. But you will be surprised to learn that Apple is not quite making a huge profit with its new smart speaker, with TechInsights reporting that it costs $216 to build and has a thinner profit margin at just 38%.
I can't believe I have to say this (actually, at this point when it comes to Apple, nothing really surprises me), but you should probably put a coaster under your HomePod before you place it on that heirloom bedside table.

No, the HomePods aren't exploding but they sure are raising some concerns. If they don't go away on their own, wiping them with a damp or dry cloth should do the trick. In case the stain doesn't go away, the company recommends "cleaning the surface with the manufacturer's suggested oiling method". If so, it could take a toll on company's plan to surpass the less-expensive smart speakers for Google and Amazon that already got a head start in the niche market.
