Inside a kitchen drawer? One of the places I would consider once again using
Minwax gloss, that thick heavy plastic crap.
Set the drawers in front of fans to help them harden between coats. I've noticed
the lingering stink comes from earlier coats out gassing through later coats.
In a production situation this is unrealistic. As a DIY let's be real. You
wouldn't be building your own if ultimate speed was that important.
Then as you say, giving it a wipe with a damp rag .... Hell, giving them a scrub
with a brush. Little bits of festering food are one thing, as has been said,
suffer a big boff of syrup and you'll wish they could be hosed, or at least
washed in the sink.
Besides the lingering smell of the product used for the finish, I like the
look and contrast of the finished and unfinished wood. I have had some
women mention that they did not want their clothing to smell like the finish
used inside of a drawer. I generally leave the inner 5 surfaces of a drawer
