Did you mix a 'sticker' in with your spray. If so, the spray would
have probably mostly
dried in the few hours after application and the sticker would have
minimized the washing
off effect. If not, you probably lost the effect of the morning
spray. Not sure why you have
to wait 10 days, but if most of it washed off, seems like it's ok
to reapply now.
