Stain over stain

I recently acquire an old walnut dresser. The face of the drawers were pretty good and seem to only require a refresher of stain. At my local homedepot store I was told about Minwax stain clothes that you can purchase and apply over old stain.

So I proceeded to apply some stain on each drawers and wiped off the excess. After that I applied a bit of Old English oil and the drawers looks great.

After they had dried , 2 out of the 4 looked great and refreshed and the other 2 had some streaks in some areas.

I should point out that theses 2 drawers had the wood grain going on the vertical instead of the horizontal and I (stupid) applied the stain on the horizontal because I didn't notice.

Can anyone help me and tell me if there is anyway I can remove these streaks?
Should I apply more stain but in the right direction this time?

Thank you
Marc

Welcome to the forums!

pics would be helpful - http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html

Scrubbing the affected areas with a rag wet with paint thinner might help.

Thank you for your help. Just to confirm the rag should be wet of paint thinner correct? And not water and paint thinner.

Regards,
Marc
