Is this product safe to use indoor? Does it release VOCs/chemicals into the air as it dries?

Asked by: Brandon
Not sure about the chemical compounds but I used this in a open backyard and the entire backyard lingered with a strong smell several hours afterwards, great product though!

If you give this a bad review because YOU chose not to wear gloves and your skin got stained - THAT'S YOUR FAULT! Staining wood is somewhat of an art, there's many ways to do it right and there's ways to mess it up. Do some research on the type of wood you're staining, you may need to use a pre-stain conditioner before applying stain. Practice on scrap wood before staining your piece. Most importantly, use COMMON SENSE. Don't pay attention to the negative reviews, this stain is great. I like Varathane the best but my store doesn't carry much of it. Minwax gets the job done.

They even say wash your hands after using. Well you can't as it is oil based. Then the chemicals are absorbed through your skin into your body. Reactions can be many. I found out in the middle of the night after much research you can use avacado oil or olive oil to wash it off. A little too late. This is serious stuff, there are warnings that it can affect your nervous system. How about saying only use with gloves. Even their on line video instructions the guy is using bare hands. WRONG!

You must read the directions, after 5-15 minutes you must wipe down the wood with a cloth. I loved the results and used a paint brush application method.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I'm in the process of refinishing a farmhouse style table, my first DIY project. I used another brand of stain and the application and color (black cherry) was terrible. Re-sanded and changed to this Minwax Dark Walnut, and absolutely beautiful. I completely ditched any directions on the can and somewhere back in time only recall stain being hand applied with old cotton tshirt. This is how I applied, sparingly and rubbing in direction of grain as I went along. I've applied 3 coats and the color is stunning. no streaking. I have had no problem with drying. Guessing those that have are applying with a brush and using too much and didn't wipe down with cloth after applying with brush. Also, if you have already stained and your project is uneven or streaked, try sanding with the lightest fine sand paper. The color will reveal itself and you can even it out -- you'll be surprised! My best advice is take your time, use an old clean pure cotton t shirt. Apply sparingly and evenly in direction of grain. And take your time and let the wood talk to you and reveal itself...don't smother it. Wait a couple days in between coats. You will notice the wood change as time passes and it sets in. I'll try to post a pic when I've completed my project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for oil base This is a great stain when you do not need gel. Minwax has always been top of the line, but be careful when trying to stain pine. For pine, either use a pre-stain coat of varnish thinned 3:1with mineral spirits, or go to the gel stains. Otherwise the stain will blotch as the stain is absorbed unevenly by the wood.
