A: Happy to help, Teresa. Varathane Golden Oak Classic Wood Interior Stain is an oil based stain, this will have the same staining performance as a Varathane water based stain. From a performance perspective, oil based and water based stains stain the wood in the same manner. Oil based stain cleans up with mineral spirits, water based stain cleans up with soap and water and has a lower odor. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
A: We appreciate your interest, Amber. Since Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain is a penetrating stain, it must be applied to bare wood to ensure proper performance and drying. This product will not properly penetrate vinyl surfaces and will likely remain tacky on the surface. At this time, we do not offer a stain product for vinyl planks. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
