What exactly is Restore A Finish?
I've seen so many people on Home Decorating forum rave about this, but can't find too much info on Howard's website. It says it can be used on shellac, lacquer, varnish, and will even clean poly. But you can't put poly over it. I have lacquered tables that have mostly fine scratches I just want to make look better. Maybe next year I'll strip and refinish them to get a few deeper gouges out, but since those places aren't down to bare wood right now I can live with them - it's getting too cold to be working in the garage.
So if I use RAF, will I be able to strip and poly the tables later, or will it leave a residue (like silicone) that will make that difficult?
I ended up stripping the coffee table and using gel stain, it looks good - just trying to decide whether to poly it or use tung oil. I'm done with lacquer (brush left marks, spray "spit" and fisheyed, that's why I stripped it).
