Sticky Kitchen Work Surface After Applying Danish OIl

Postby Manners » Tue Sep 12, 2017 8:17 pm


I recently had an Ikea kitchen installed, the work surface we got has a solid wood layer on top of particle board. When it was installed the installer applied Danish oil to the surface and recommend this is performed 3 or 4 times following this. I performed this and the surface seemed fine but a couple months later and after various cleans the surface is really tacky and sticky. After speaking to Ikea they advised us we applied too much danish oil and we need to strip this back..

Does anyone have any recomendations on how I can sort this out? I spent a lot on getting this in and love it but it's so sticky.. I read you can sand back with fine sandpaper but I'm worried about damaging the surface or so far back it's no longer protected.. can anyone suggest the correct steps and getting this sorted!
