    Re: MDF got WET!

    I have had MDF get wet a few times. If it sits in water then its going to go moldy. If it got alittle water on it when it dries u it will be darker in that area but will be fine. Just make sure to let it all dry out good first. If it gets too much water it will swell up.
    Its not like reg. particle board where it gets wet and starts to flake.

    Meh. I wouldn't worry about it. Soaking it is different than getting some water drops on it. You'll be fine

    Staining and poly'ing a finish protects it from water, yes. When it's already wet, it's just going to make the problem worse
