I want to stain cabinets either the same color or darker, and I want to remove the shiny top-coat with this. I keep seeing people talking about painting after using this, but not staining. will this help me prep for staining, or should I just sand the old fashioned way?

Answer: 
This deglosses the surface. It doesn't remove the finish (varnish, poly, etc). Therefore, the stain won't be able to penetrate the wood. It's great for skipping the sanding. A tinted top coat like minwax makes could be used after.

You will need to strip the wood you are working on before staining or re-staining. This product will remove the shine, but will not remove the entire prior product - which is most likely an oil-based polyurethane. To be able to stain, you need to have bare wood so it can absorb the new stain. I recommend using a stripping chemical first and then sanding. It will speed the process up.

To be able to stain, you need to have bare wood so it can absorb the new stain. I recommend using a stripping chemical first and then sanding. It will speed the process up. Otherwise you will be sanding for hours. The chemical strippers are messy, but work well. I have used them many times to refinish kitchen cabinets and flea-market finds. Follow the directions on the can, wear gloves, scrape the gunk off, let dry and then sand. Good luck with your project. Read Less

I tried this product to degloss a piece before staining it darker. Sorry but was disappointed in the results. After using as directed, new stain beaded up & stayed wet. Started over and hand sanded.

Answer: 
I'm going to gamble a bit...I removed the front of the drawers and will do a test on the back side of one of them. I'm not too concerned with getting the color exact. I just want it to be darker and fill in some of the color worn (lighter) areas a bit. I will follow up later to let you know my results.

Answer: 
No. A good sanding using different grades of sandpaper would be the key to a successful color pattern for your project. Then applying the darker wood stain, followed by a coat or two of varnish.

Well, my first thought is to say "no" because to be sure of getting the stain color that I wanted, I would go the more labor intensive route of sanding. This product won't remove the old stain which could "fight" with new stain & make the color results different from what you want.

Answer: 
No, it will not. You want to use some acetone or mineral spirits to strip the machining process of the metal trim and any paint over it. The sander deglosser is used for wood. It's made to increase the adhesion factor between old finishes and new finishes on wood such as applying gel stain over polyurethane finish coats from previous applications.

No, the Liquid Sander won't be able to prep metal, only already painted surfaces. To etch metal I'd get a metal prep product like Prep & Etch, or something similar.

Answer: 
Some metal coatings are "baked on enamel" or "powder coat" - which are very hard and slick. I have tried this product in the past on similar coating and did not think it did as well as other painted surfaces. Try lightly sanding the surface to break up the consistency and then wipe on the liquid sander.

Answer: 
No, you will need to use 150-200 grit sandpaper for metal to smooth out any scratches/imperfections. Follow the product instructions. You may need to apply more than one application. It does a good job de-glossing metal finishes for a better adhesion of new paint. Use a good quality spray or brush on enamel paint.

Answer: 
Trying to think of a way that it would, and I can't see that working. It dulls the surface so you can paint over it, but if you want to smooth out scratches, you'll have to do old fashioned sanding in those areas. If you're going to paint, then you could use this product to get the rest of the area ready for paint to adhere. It really is like magic in that respect.

1 qt. Easy Liquid Sander is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I needed to paint latex paint on woodwork that had been painted with high gloss paint. A test patch of new paint on the high gloss revealed that the new paint could be easily scratched off with a fingernail. Then, I washed an area, of the woodwork, with the deglosser. Visibly, the difference between the washed wood and the unwashed wood was subtle. I painted the washed area along with some of the unwashed area next to it. After the paint dried, I tried to scratch it off. The difference was significant. The new paint was stuck to the wood that had been washed with the deglosser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to get the job done! I was refinishing a dresser and didn't want to go through the hassle of sanding and priming it, as I was short on time and also didn't mind if it came out imperfectly. Decided to take a chance on the liquid sander, and so far, so good! I was skeptical at first, as the test surface I tried looked the exact same as the part I hadn't touched--just as glossy and varnished. But lo and behold, a quick paint scratch test showed that it worked--the paint over the sander stuck, and the paint on the untreated portion easily scratched off. I applied the liquid sander to the rest of the dresser, painted two coats, and it looks great. I'll update if the pain suddenly starts flaking off, but it doesn't look or feel like it will. Very happy to have saved hours of sanding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to sanding I was impressed with this easy liquid sander product. I had to paint over a new vanity because the color was cream and the bathroom was white. I applied as directed with a coarse cloth and could feel the drag of the cloth on the surface after a few good swirls. It dried fast so I could proceed to paint the surfaces. It did a great job of the paint adhering. Best part of using this product, there is no sand residue left afterwards where you have to be so careful to wipe everything as not to get any specs into the paint being applied. I was super happy with the end product. Will never go back to sanding again, except if the surface is bumpy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saved time sanding intricate molding. Used it instead of sanding glossy-painted molding. Easy to use and provided a good surface for the new paint to stick to. Does not remove old paint, but roughes up the surface so you can paint over it.

Nothing beats sanding so I would pair this product with some light sanding before applying this product. For this product to work correctly it requires some contact time before you wipe it clean. I used a green scouring pad to apply it on thick in a circular motion and then waited a few minutes before wiping off. Used it for thick polyurethane on wood trim. If the surface is still shiny then I would repeat the process until the surface is dull and tacky. Paint must be applied while surface is still tacky. This product is not meant to strip the previous coatings off the wood so I don't think this is recommended if you plan on staining or revarnishing. I would use before painting only.

I had to apply two coats to get the shine from the old, not made from real wood, furniture to disappear. Worked like a charm. Primed and painted without any adhesion problems. This product is worth the money.

I have used this product on many jobs over the past decade or so, and now, its time for us to re-do our own cabinets throughout the house. Rather than replace something that is in great shape, we are going to give the cabinets a new "set of clothes" :) Probably paint them white or whiteish with some red handles. This stuff will make the job sooooooo easy!!!!! If you've never used it, or any "liquid sander", YOUTUBE it and find out just how easy it is to redo/remodel your home.
