So I am in the midst of refinishing my oak floors.
I thoroughly sanded them and they are nice and clean and even.
I then applied a Minwax stain (red oak) to them last night.
I took my time and the floors came out beautifully.
I wanted to start polyurethaning them this evening, about 24hrs. after
Prior to laying down the polyurethane, I wiped down the floor with tack
rags dampened with mineral spirits, like the Minwax can said.
Now I have streaks in my floor where I wiped it with the tack rags!!!!!
A little bit of stain came up as I wiped, and now I fear that I made
the stain uneven.
The color is consistent, but the streaks are more like some areas are
shiny and others are dull.
Thanks in advance for the help.
