It looked beautiful, a rich golden brown that really brought out the grain in the wood. Happy with my day's hard work I went indoors. But my BBC weather app which predicted a 10% chance of rain lied to me. Three or four hours after applying the final coat it chucked it down.
This is the result: spots and long streaks of a waxy milk white residue sitting on the surface. It's not everywhere - some boards seem to have escaped it (no idea why) - but it's difficult to budge with the power washer without risking damage to the wood and a scrubbing brush just seems to smear it further into the grain.
Any suggestions on how to proceed are very much welcomed.

I offer no guarantee it will work but have a look at Osmo reviver gel, it comes in various sizes from 500ml upwards so wouldn't cost the earth to get some and spot test somewhere more inconspicuous to see if it helps?

I would hold back from reapplying the cuprinol on top of the osmo for a good 3 or 4 days to allow it it to fully dry.
The Barman says, "I'm sorry, we don't serve time travellers". This time traveller walks into a bar.
Saying that, the Met aren't so great around here for predicting rain. Quite often, 0% chance means it's bucketing down. Cycling friends swear by yr.no - a Norwegian site - and Will It Rain Today?
I also have milky dealing, but it is way down my list of things to fix atm.
