How to fix almost every issue, including but not limited to blotchy spots, water spots (remember to wait 2-3 weeks before water testing), waxy or tacky feeling, dulled the wood, or if it does not dry:

  • You can add a very small amount of Odie's Oil to the surface and vigorously rub it in with a grey (or white if sanding 800 grit or more) scotch-brite, then immediately buff it off with a cotton terry towel. Wipe your hand across the surface. If it leaves a mark continue to buff off using a cotton terry towel. The cure time will restart at this time. Do this in small 2ft by 2ft or 1ft by 1ft sections.
  • This is caused by applying too much oil on the wood, and/or leaving product on the surface of the wood.

 How to keep your unused jar of Odie's fresh: 

  • Unless you use Bloxygen all of the Odie’s products will harden in the presence of oxygen.
  • You can try to dig beneath the hardened part of your jar, and there may be some useable portion  



My sheen isn't high enough:

  • You sheen is dictated by your sanding. The higher you sand, the higher your sheen.
  • IMPORTANT: Do NOT skip any grits. The progression should go 60-80-100-120-150-180-220-280-320-400-600-800-1000-1200
  • Adding layers of the oil, wax, or especially the butter will help some.
