Recently I started using WATCO butcher block finish with good results. My problem is the last two cans have hardened before it is half gone. First I see white spots on the inside of the lid, next time I opened the can it would be solid. The temperature has been 90 or over for about three weeks and the humidity has been 80. Do you think the temp. and humidity could be causing it? What can I do to stop it? Thanks …..... Tom

Does the label say to keep it in a cool , dry place ?

Bloxygen replaces the air inside the can and prevents the product from
drying” out.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

I may have to invest in some of the Bloxygen but I can’t find anything on the can about storage. It says to apply at room temp.72 degrees. It doesn’t get that cool at night. ....... Tom
