Cetol is a good product IF you read and follow the instructions:

"Previous coatings must be removed prior to the application of Cetol DEK Finish."

That includes old coats of Cetol.

You'll need to strip the whole thing and start over.

Got to love Sikkens , it means money to me. Strip it, neutralize then coat it. Not a job for the amateur.

The product generally doesn't break up like that if it's been applied and maintained correctly to begin with. Once it does get to that point you have to strip it before restaining. It isn't the easiest thing to strip either.
