I'm about to apply a second coat of stain+varnish combo on a little shelf i
built out of salvaged slats of pinewood.
Yesterday, I applied a first layer of varnish with a foam-tip brush, and
then i tried wiping-off excess varnish with an old kitchen cloth. That was a
BAD idea because the varnish had already started to set and had gotten
really sticky, and the kitchen cloth released quite an amount of lint which
adhered to the freshly-stained wood....
anyway, what kind of lint-free cloths do you pros use for wiping-off excess
varnish? anything i can find around the household?
Got a significant other? Undershirts are great. Too sticky, little bit of
Goodwill, St Vinnies, etc. sell t-shirt rags for next to nothing. Some, of
course, are imprinted with things you wouldn't want others to see....
