Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to use - starting over Purchased to use on a tabletop. Most difficult stain I've ever used. Impossible to get an even finish. When doing in sections any overlap areas were uneven. When trying to coat all at once it's just impossible to get all of the excess off in a timely manner and again evenly. Dries very fast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dries way too fast This product makes me want to NEVER use a water based stain again. It dries so fast is impossible to wipe off any area that pools or drips. Impossible to get a nice even finish. I will be sanding down my project and using an oil based stain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I just bought this stain for some maple slab doors for a kitchen remodel. The maple was sanded as recommended, with a minwax water based wood conditioner applied before application. The wood conditioner (also a Minwax product) made the wood swell a lot, which made the recommended "light" hand sanding with 220 grit quite a bit more arduous than just knocking down the raised grain. As to the performance of the stain, it dries nearly instantly, justy like another reviewer stated in less than a minute. Any attempt at then trying to smooth it out was ineffective and left terrible streaks. Maybe it works well on closed grain woods, but on maple it is horrible. I started one door out of about 40 and immediately gave up. I would definitely NOT recommend this product. I realize the EPA is limiting the sale of oil based stains due to their VOC's, but this product in particular cannot hold even a close candle to an oil based old fashioned stain. I will NEVER buy this product again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult to use We recently stained a new table. We started by using the minwax water based preconditioned as directed, and then applying the semi transparent water based stain. It went on very easily, but soaked into the wood too fast and dried too quickly. We were looking to get a lot of grain to show through. The can says to apply and wipe off within 2-4 minutes. The stain had completely soaked in in about 40 seconds. The first coat we let the stain sit for the recommended 2 minutes, but in some places the excess wiped off smoothly, while others the rag pulled up too much or not enough stain, like the stain was a tacky mess. The second coat we did not trust the directions, and instead wiped the stain about 20 seconds after application. This worked better, but still came out splotchy. We ended up sanding the table bare and applying the oil based stain with significantly better results. In the future I will only be using the solid color water based stain to completely dye the wood a specific color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How can I pick a color when the samples are wrong? I spent a long time with the minwax sample book to try and find a water based semi transparent stain to match existing woodwork. Pecan was, according to the sample sheet, an excellent choice. Now that I’ve bought a quart and applied it for a few seconds to a sample piece of wood before wiping it down, I find that the “real” color is waaaay off. Not a little bit. 50 shades, maybe more (e.g. Mahogany vs light pine). What a waste of time and money. How in the world can I determine if a custom color works for my project when the sample sheet is useless? Please help. I’d like to use your product, but I don’t know how to find a color that works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick easy stain Very easy to work with on home projects. Little to no odor and when working on large pieces that need stained on both sides, you can just wait roughly an hour and flip and coat the next side. I was able to cover about 30-40 sqft of material with less than a quarter of the can. Only complaint is that it dries a bit too fast and you have to work quickly in small sections to make sure you wipe off the excess before it dries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Okay where do I begin. I was nervous when selecting a good product for my floor because I'm very picky and I hate products that fade quickly. Well after our flooring was installed I applied this and I love it because it was water based and not oil based so it wasn't so thick and it was really easy to apply. It gave it a beautiful look after it was finished.
