When you spray a finish in humid conditions, a "blushed" (whitened) surface can occur when moisture becomes trapped in the finish. As soon as the blush appears, use Aerosol Blush Eraser to reflow the surface and free the trapped moisture. It preserves the clarity of the finish, and helps "melt-in" overspray after spot finish repairs, too. For use with nitrocellulose lacquer finishes only.

must have

This is a must have for anyone refinishing anything with lacquer. Most of my jobs are done in my garage, and in TN the humidity will kill you. This has saved more than one project.

Can't work without it

My spray area is not air conditioned and the humidity can get awful. When I spray lacquer in that environment, it forms a haze under the fresh coat. Stew-Mac's Blush Eraser removes the haze immediately. I move the piece into the house to hang and finish drying normally. It only takes a mist or two for it to work. One can lasts through about two complete guitar finishes. Consider I mist between every coat, color tone and clear. I have also noticed that a mist of Blush Eraser brings out the "wet look" on a fresh coat of lacquer and seems to dry more evenly. I would not start a spray project without it. The instrument in the photo has 10 coats of gloss over a Color tone burst, and has not been wet sanded or rubbed out and polished yet.

Must have for lacquer

I made the mistake of spraying lacquer on a mandolin project on a high humidity day. It immediately blushed. I sprayed the blush eraser on and it disappeared. Great product!

Didn't help but it was a long shot

I got some blushing when I was applying Nitro sanding sealer on a very humid day. I decided to try the blush remover product but it was 5 days after I sprayed when I got it. It didn't work so I had to sand off the sealer and start again. It would have been great if it had worked but it was a long shot so I don't fault the product, just my bad timing.

blush spray

this is a good product for blushing or re-flowing a run in the finish. but should be used very limited because it does take a lot longer for the finish to dry.

Works Like Magic

Brutally hot and humid summer in Michigan this year, and didn't have any of the jet on hand. Of course I had some major blushing issues, and had to order from Stew Mac. I had reservations if it would work nearly 4 days after the issue appeared, but a short spray took away the problem instantly. Simply a must have.

Works so even made my wife blush!

This product is a must have if you live in humid surroundings. I was working on a Hofner Beatles Bass with this blush remover and the finish came out sparklingly beautiful. So beautiful that it even made my wife blush when she saw it.

Great Finishing Supplies!

It works like a charm! And easy to apply! Just be careful to use sparingly because it will want to run.

It really works

After applying first coat of sanding sealer to my mandolin the blush appeared, top and back both. What to do? I remembered seeing the Jet Spray in the Stew-Mac catalogue and hurried to order it before 4 pm so it would ship the same day. Guess what? It was delivered the next morning!
It completely removed the blush after being there for three days. I am glad to have the can on hand now so I can use it when needed.
