Q imported from our old site, Face Lift Floors: Our kitchen is being remodeled.

Is it safe to put everything (dishes, food, etc.) back in the cabinets or should we wait until after the last coat of poly is applied?
A: I would definitely wait. Last thing you want is an odor clinging to your dishes.
