    finish mishap!!!

    ok my daughter has informed me that she has got some glad deodorizer on the hutch i made her last year,,, and didnt realize it till some time later..the finish was 2 coats shellac then 4 or 5 coats of lacquer on top..this glad deoderizer had some blue green color to it and made the hutch have some blackish blue spots where it had set awhile before she found it.. any idea how to fix it ? or do we just chaulk it up to being character???

    try wiping with a solvent that won`t cut lacquer first.....like mineral spirits or dna.....
    if that doesnt remove the mark then try a thinner moistened rag knowing that you`ll probably need to sand-n-buff or maybe even respray.

    I'll bow to Tod's experience on fixing it, I sure hope it works out.

    Larry, next time tell her to open a window if she wants fresh air
