Hi all,

I had the same issue. Fast-drying Minwax semi-gloass ruined my Cabinet door with white streaks. It was like a chemical reaction craziness. Whatever the cause was, I used a hair dryer. With the hottest setting, I took time.. With patience, the streaks went away like a miracle. It was after 24 hours of drying. If I had use the hot air earlier, it might have taken less time. But hot air works.

thanks


After a week of babying a dining room set to get it just perfect before varnishing, we applied this MinWax product and.... white streaks everywhere! Thanks to Google and all of you here, I did as you suggested, and used a hairdryer on the varnish less than an hour after the streaks appeared. It took only a few minutes, it now looks beautiful! Thank you to all of you who post and share your experience!

This is an EASY fix!! The same thing happened to some interior doors I had stained and applied the same polyurethane to. Just get a blow dryer and go over the hazy areas. It takes a little time, but works like magic and stays looking like new. Wish I would have known this years ago when I had the same problem, stripped down everything, and started over 😫



Thank you for this tip!! I had a lot of white left over on some night stands I'm working on and I panicked, thinking I would have to start from scratch. I'm so glad I read this post - the hair dryer was such an easy fix!

I just found out from MinWax they have a problem with their stain and polyurethane. They call it "entrapment". This happens when recovering an old minwax surface. Their solution is to sand down to bare wood and start over.

I have never trusted or been happy with any MinWax product, except that
their finishing wax is a good screw lubricant.
