    I treated my kitchen worktops with Howden's Prime Worktop Oil 7 hours ago. I did it exactly as I've done 4 or 5 times since the worktops were fitted two years ago.
    It has not dried, it is still tacky to the touch and looks really dull.
    It was the same tin as I've used before, and probably the same brush.
    I prepared the worksurface by washing it, rinsing it, letting it dry for a few hours then lightly sanding it. I also treated a new piece of plywood and that is also still looks matt and is tacky to the touch.
    Is it just this frosty weather or is something wrong?
    Any ideas are welcome.
