Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Briz Looks great
We took out rug and linoleum in our cottage. It was tough getting the glue from both off the concrete slab. I used hot water and a good scrapper. Some of the glue stayed, but the stain still absorbed and looks nice. I cleaned the floor really well with just soap and water. Had the etch and clean but didn't use it. I applied 2-3 sprayer coats of the warm honey stain. It dries with in 25 mins. Once it looked pretty even I applied the eagle sealant. I'm really happy with the way it all turned out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PIRATAWENCH THIS STUFF IS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For a long time, I had been vacillating about what to do with the floor covering for my upstairs floors - they are concrete - had carpeting and wanted to get rid of it - but do I tile? vinyl tile? wood flooring? finally, decided to try staining the concrete - worse that could happen is that I would have to re-do the floors if I did not like the stained concrete - well, I AM SO GLAD that I purchased this product and stained my floors
The product is water-based and very easy to use - if you are artistic, you can create one-of-a-kind floors - I applied the stain "free hand" - so no two spots on the floors are the same
I love this color - but, if you are not into the warm colors, you could always buy the other colors they have available
As I read in other review, I highly suggest taping your walls (as well as baseboards and any furniture or items you cannot move) with plastic, to protect them - I did not tape my stairwell, as it was just too complex - so after applying the stain and concrete sealer, I had to sand down those walls - which, to me, was easier than taping them
Both the stain and the sealer dry quickly - at least they did in my apartment
I did not etch nor use any degreaser (my floors had been covered with carpeting and were pretty clean, as well as I wanted a somewhat "rustic" look, too)
The pictures do not do the floors justice, but they do provide you with an idea (note: I live in a very small apartment, so that is why you see a "cluttered" look, which was during the prep)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FestiveCup Great Color Easy Application
This is a waterbased product that was easily applied with a cheap sprayer. No clogging or mess ... just threw the sprayer away when finished. Deep red / brown finish - very nice and permanent. Quick drying allowed us to apply several coats. Added a second color for even more interest. Covered at about twice the rate promised in the instructions.
This was a lighter color so I am not sure how it would look on its own. We used it as a final spray to highlight a darker color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 4my4girls Worked great as second color
We used Warm Honey on top of the Malt Brown to lighten it up and add interest. We love our new mudroom floor. Should have done this in our whole basement too -- if we'd have known about this back then!
