Forum Title: Can't get doors clean (prep)
10 solid core doors (dentist office). Got a spray room all ready. Goofed off adhesive residual. Cleaned doors with Krud Kutter TSP sub. Lightly sanded and dusted off. Saw some dust I missed and hit with a wet rag. Rag was yellowy. Took the rag to the rest of the door...yellow coming off everywhere with just water. Looks like the stain color. I'm not sure what to do or why this is happening. Do you think the previous owner had the doors refinished and they only stained them and did not put a clear over the stain? This is ridiculous and setting me back big time. Primer I was planning on using is Stix. Really don't want to switch to Cover Stain in this environment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
