Failing Finish

HarryB in Kukpsville
>I need some help from all the expertise around here. I sold four bottle stoppers to a neighbor around Christmas. She gave three of them back to me last evening because the finish was pealing off. I don't remember what finish I used but it was either CA or lacquer. I know she didn't put them in the dishwasher and she claims they weren't soaked but she did use dish detergent and water. I suspect they were soaked a bit longer than she admits.

I really like the CA finish and can't think why it would do something like this. But of course I feel the same way about the lacquer.

Can anyone shed some light on what may have happened and perhaps give me some suggestions for a better finsh?

Thanks, Harry
