Customer Questions & Answers

Use this before a poly/stain combo like Minwax Polyshades?

I have an old wood desk with a pecan stain now that I want to apply Polyshades to in a darker, walnut finish. Can I use this product to help with adhesion?
Asked by: StephenM
I am confused by the expert's answer to this question. Polyshades is a stain and polyurethane in one. It is formulated so that it can be used over previously stained and varnished wood with only a light sanding to ensure adhesion. My experience is that when you use polyshades on untreated wood the first coat goes on like a stain and enhances the grain. the second coat goes on more like a glaze with overall darkening of the wood. but when you use Polyshades on wood that is already stained and varnished it acts mostly like a glaze with an overall darkening effect and keeping but somewhat diminishing the grain that was already there. I have not tried it with a liquid deglosser instead of the light sanding which is recommended but I am hoping to do so. I plan to use the espresso stain because I want a deep brown color with minimal grain. Is the product expert familiar with the Polyshades product?? Is there some kind of chemical incompatibility between the two products that I should be concerned with??

will this product remove scratches

Asked by: patty
No. If you need to remove scratches, you will need to sand them out or fill them before using the deglosser.

Will this product work well for deglossing ceramic tile?

The tile in my bathroom is a high gloss 4X4 ceramic tile and I hate the color. I have tried painting with an enamel paint, but it scrapes off very easily. Just wondering if this product would eliminate a full sanding job. It's hideous, I know!
Asked by: Carolyn
No, I suggest contacting a bath tub refinishing company. The process for ceramic tile and ceramic tiles is the same, and can actually be done at the same time. I have had this done very successfully but it is a very serious operation, not for a DYIer.

I want to stain after using this product

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?
Asked by: Meg
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.

1 qt. Easy Liquid Sander is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 128.
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.

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.

My wife wanted to change it from a glossy brass to a flat black. I used this to treat the surface of the brass to remove the gloss so that the spray paint would adhere...the effect was perfect for my project.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product This product saved me time. You slather it on and let it work. 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easier and cleaner. We are repainting the interior of our home. Walls, doors and trim. Using this liquid sander is the only way to prep the trim and doors. Some areas still need to be scraped, or sanded, but this stuff works very well overall.

Often products don't live up to their hype, but this one sure did. In the end, I'd have to say that this product made my pending task a whole lot easier. Highly recommend it to those who don't want to spend a lifetime sanding...
