We just had some wood floors refinished upstairs. The job came out ok
but we had a big problem where the water based polyurethane that they
used seeped through the floor and came down into our basement. It got
all over this computer desk and spattered over the monitor and a couple
of printers. Nothing is ruined to the point of not being functional,
but the desk looks like crap and so do the printers.
Nothing I have tried takes this stuff off. I am guessing that anything
that could take it off would also take the finish of the desk off. The
desk is a finished piece of white pine we got from IKEA.
Is there any way to get this stuff off of the desk or the plastic
Thanks in advance,
Wet sand with 600 or finer. Buff out by hand with Mother's or
That doesn't work, spray paint the plastic for a unique look.
For the desk, scrape with a razor and rub with 0000 wool, then either
the auto compounds to bring up the gloss if lacquer. Watco will fix
damaged oil finishes.
1. Try alcohol.
2. Try the waterless hand cleaner used for removing grease, used by
gargage mechanics. Its a paste with pumice. I find that an excellent
product for cleaning many things and it leaves a smooth surface too.
Its great for cleaning the "cultured marble" bathroom countertops.
