Sticky Old Chair

I have an old chair (wooden, stained) that is very sticky in places. Perhaps from the old varnish and especially sticky in warm weather. How do I fix this? Thank You.

Your chair may have been "oil" finished and its the old oil that is sticky. You might try cleaning it with mild cleaner, letting it dry and see if its still sticky. Your only recourse may be to strip the chair and apply a new finish and sealer.

Good luck and post back

It may well be sticky from dirt and other deposits. Cleaning it will show you its condition when you have finished.
