Thank you for your reply...Alot of other people on these sites say the same but
it was too late for me. I did use Zar oil stain but I didn't thiing that
covered very well, blotchy...I just went back down to check & most of the haze
is gone& looks like most of the poly as well. I want to cover over those sanded
bubble marks, little circles that remain after sanding smooth. Not sure if I
should wipe w/more acetone, oms, or buy denatured alcohol & if one of those
don't remove them & touch up my sand thru's w/another coat of stain or just put
on more poly?? Sorry but this has been my first time posting but I've been
reading these for months...Thanks again & if anyone else has info to correct,
please contact me ASAP!! Your help is much appreciated!!

This is not an answer to the question. But I'm have the same problem. I'm
refinishing a table and two end tables. My daughter wanted them painted a new
color, so I am using Rust-oleum (espresso) with a wash . The set is over 50
years old, so nice and dry. The paint was no problems, looked great. I allowed
the paint to dry for about 5 days. I live in the Arizona desert the temperature
has been in the high 80's to mid 90's. The water based polyurethane was stirred
very well (nothing on the bottom of the can). I used a brush to apply, and
found it foaming every where, I mean real bad. Do they add a foaming agent to
the product? I changed over and used a cloth to apply the rest and it seemed to
work much better. I waited about 3 hours, I did a light sanding and applied a
second coat and allowed to dry over night. The next day, I have white patches
all over the place. Looks like garbage. Can I put and oil based polyurethane
over the top ? Or do I have to start all over again and wast about 30 hours of
time ? I have used Minwax for years and never had this this kind of problems. Is
it something I did wrong or is it the product? HELP!
I had the same issue. Fast-drying Minwax semi-gloass ruined my Cabinet doo
r with white streaks. It was like a chemical reaction craziness. Whatever t
he cause was, I used a hair dryer. With the hottest setting, I took time.
With patience, the streaks went away like a miracle. It was after 24 hours
of drying. If I had use the hot air earlier, it might have taken less tim
e. But hot air works.

After a week of babying a dining room set to get it just perfect before var
nishing, we applied this MinWax product and.... white streaks everywhere! T
hanks to Google and all of you here, I did as you suggested, and used a hai
rdryer on the varnish less than an hour after the streaks appeared. It took
only a few minutes, it now looks beautiful! Thank you to all of you who po
st and share your experience!

Sad to say it's just the Minwax....us
ed it for years with no prob...going on 3rd attempt at this job...used Minwax
twice after talking to their help line...switched to Rust-oleum...no
prob..Sherwin-williams bought Minwax....wonder what they have done
This is an EASY fix!! The same thing happened to some interior doors I had
stained and applied the same polyurethane to. Just get a blow dryer and go
over the hazy areas. It takes a little time, but works like magic and stays
looking like new. Wish I would have known this years ago when I had the sa
me problem, stripped down everything, and started over 😫
