Q:I have a wooden furniture that has a lot of red tone (after sanding), can I use this white wash stain to tone down the redness, and then apply another neutral wood stain? or should I stain the wood with a neutral wood stain and then this white wash stain?

Answer This Question

A:  Let's see if we can help, Christine. To best neutralize the red color of your wood, we recommend first staining the wood using Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain and then applying the whitewash after the stain has fully dried. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Kona-Premium-Fast-Dry-Interior-Wood-Stain-266161/203332251 -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

    Q:How long to keep baby away after staining

    Answer This Question

    A:  Happy to help, Kayla! Our recommendation is to leave items in a well-ventilated area for one week after painting with the Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain. This allows for the most complete curing as well as maximum coating hardness. As with any coating product, care should be taken to ensure that accidental ingestion does not occur. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14

      Q:Does Varathane White Wash yellow over time? We used Oil base Old Masters wiping stain on pine T&G & when I removed the decor on the walls, the walls were yellow behind the decor. Strange because the walls were still white from white wash.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thanks for reaching out. Varathane Whitewash Wood Enhancer can be used on interior wood projects such as furniture, cabinets, doors, and trim, it will not yellow over time. For long term protection and durability, top with Varathane Water Based Polyurethane, do not use an oil based polyurethane, as these dry to an amber finish. Whitewash if for interior use only, do not use outdoors. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Satin-Water-Based-Interior-Polyurethane-200241H/100169146 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

          If you like a soft light white on wood this works very well. We applied it like a stain. but you can brush it on. we used old rags and put it on thin so we could still see the woodgrain come through. Only issue was how we had to buy it.. I had to get two its. and I only needed less than one.. So what can I white wash now?…LOL!

          I feel robbed!!!
          I was wanting to try this product for A huge project. I was wanting a white wash finish. My wood Was kiln dryer popular. Sanded with 80 grit. Basically did nothing. I normally do not write reviews but this product is a bad one. We'll take a look at the photo yourself. There is a possibility I got a bad can but doubt it. Going with the 1to1 paint and water.

          Response from Rust-OleumSupportFeb 22, 2023
          Let's talk about this! If applying Rust-Oleum Varathane White Wash Wood Stain to a lighter wood, more applications may need to be done to allow for the best color. This is a semi-transparent product and will not be opaque like a paint. Bare wood should also be sanded with #120 grit sandpaper and progressed though #150, and #180 grits.

            cool white color, enhances grain nicely
            I was looking for a pale cool (bluish, not yellowish) gray color, basically a weathered-wood look but lighter. After applying Weatherwash Storm on maple wood, which is terrific for enhancing the grain while staying towards the blue, but it's still darker than I wanted (right side of photo). So I wiped on a thin layer of Varathane White Wash (left side of photo), and it's *perfect*, exactly what I wanted. Grain is still vivid, color is lovely. Easy to use, dried quickly, one coat was all I needed.
