Q: We stained our hardwood floors in the living room. The can of stain said it takes 24 hours to dry. It has been 3 days now and our floors feel sticky. How do we fix stain not drying on hardwood floor?
A: When you applied the stain, did you remove the excess with a clean cloth?
You could try wiping the floor down with a cloth dampened with mineral spirits to remove heavy stain residue sitting on the surface. Make sure you allow good cross ventilation to aid in drying.
