I'm helping my sister refinish a rustic dining room table. I talked her through all the steps and it came out pretty well. The finish is Minwax wipe on poly. Here's the issue... The table is 20 years old, so has 20 years of people resting their arms on the edges. She cleaned and sanded those areas as best as she could, without going to bare wood though because she didn't want to have to stain. Those areas just don't want to accept the finish properly and are remaining tacky. Rest of the table is fine. Will they dry with enough time? Any ideas greatly appreciated!
