I just aquired an old (20 yr) office wood credenza. It is made of particle board with good quality vaneer. The finish in some areas seems milky or cloudy. I've tried numurous cleaners and nothing works. So I think it may be the finish itself, Is this the aging polyurethane effect?
If so is there a fix short of a complete strip and refinish.
I really hope so.
Cheers

Blushing is caused by moisture in the air when the finish was applied, if this is the case all that is needed is another application, note that blushing is most common in lacquers, which must be sprayed, however there is a brushable lacquer but I have never used this and cannot comment on it's finish look (call your local pro paint store). If you do try another application be sure to lightly sand with a 220 grit and remove the dust before proceding.
