Can I use sand/de glosser on cabinets to remove streaks of paint?
Z on Sep 15, 2015The weather certainly could have had something to do with it. Do you have anywhere else you can work on these? I doubt you want to wait for better weather, but I see no sense in redoing them if you'll just have the same problem over again. I know that's not the answer you were hoping for, but it's an honest one.Helpful Reply

Z on Sep 15, 2015Another thought. Did you degrease the cabinets before using the liquid sander? If you didn't than that could be part of the problem too.Helpful Reply

Janet Pizaro on Sep 15, 2015The weather definitely was the problem. To much humidity will cause streaking.Helpful Reply
Shari on Sep 15, 2015No, no, no, "liquid sandpaper" or "deglosser" product cannot be used in place of sanding, in your current situation. In fact, it does not react well with paint at all so if you try to use it now instead of hand sanding with a sanding block or traditional sandpaper, you will REALLY have a mess on your hands. Please don't do it! I use deglosser all the time on my furniture projects but you can only use it BEFORE you start painting. Any sanding that needs to be done after your first coat of primer or paint has to be done the "old fashioned" way. If you started to paint before the deglosser product had a chance to dry, that could also be a reason why your finish is streaky. (Been there/done that!)Helpful Reply
