cabinet spots

Hello everyone! I bought these Chinese cabinets a year ago and they have been great other that one major problem. The started developing moisture spots on the finish. I was able to buff with a dish sponge, some of the sports out.

Wish they would have uses a quality finish on them
Any suggestions on how I can "buff" the surface and refinish without going too deep and hitting the stain.

Next time i will buy American!

And if that does not work try tooth paste on a soft cloth.
At some point it would be best to degrease, sand, wipe off with mineral spirits and apply a coat of quality poly. I prefure marine grade products.

Send a message via Yahoo to coupe

you might try some auto polishing compound on damp sponge? don't rub too hard as may go into stain? just gently
as always, just my thoughts
good luck....coupe/Larry
