I have been reading comments on the site about wipe-on poly. I am refinishing kitchen cabinets and want to use a wipe-on finish. Someone mentioned using microfiber cloth to wipe on the finish. Where would I purchase that? If it just ordinary microfiber that looks like suede leather fabric or is it the microfiber cloth that has more texture like some of the cleaning cloths available. I have contacted several paint stores and our big box lumber stores and no one has a pad that is suitable for this.

I used to apply the wipe-on MinWax poly before I had good spray equipment and I got excellent results using contractor grade paper towels.

I would fold them into a nice pad and they would lay out a nice smooth layer of finish. I have used both the white and blue colored contractor paper towels with great success. I have never had an issue with the blue ones leaving any color behind.

You will find that your questions will get better response if you post in the blog or forum section. Go to the upper right on the LJ screen and you will find your personal icon and the tab “My LumberJocks.” That has a drop down menu and you will find the options to create a blog or forum post.

Once you get better exposure for your question, you will enjoy the best part of LJ. That is a vast range of knowledge and experience that will give advice. Then you will have to decide what will work best for your situation.

Good Luck!

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
