My husband and I are finishing a piece of pine using the following products:
Minwax pre-stain wood conditioner
Minwax Wood Finish stain
Minwax Fast Drying Poly
The first coat of poly left cloudy streaks and patches in the finish. In some spots, it almost looks like the poly dissolved and discoloured some of the stain. Rubbing the area with a cloth does not help, but I have not tried sanding yet.
I would appreciate any advice on how to remedy and avoid this problem in the future.
