1 Qt. Gloss Polyurethane Wipe-On is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 18.

This Watco dries so fast it is unworkable. You might as well brush it on like regular poly and just let it dry. I used it on a small wood project in the garage and it was a battle. We are talking spring, 70 degrees, no wind, some humidity. It doesn't get any better for conditions. You have to do very small sections and take it off really fast. I mean in a few seconds. I really felt like I was trying to use standard poly as a wipe on. Not sure if it needs more oil or thinner but not worth my time to mess with it. Bad move HD for replacing the Minwax Wipe On Poly with this stuff. They simply don't have the formula down on it. Watco's Danish Oils are still some of the best in the industry but they failed at being a "me too" product in the wipe on poly market. I can't believe this got past Watco R&D/QC. Wipe on poly is easy to make correctly.

I was taking the "easy" way out by getting something I could wipe on. After sanding the wood and wiping the poly on with a clean rag, when it dried, it was rough. Not the smooth finish I thought it would be. Sanded it, wiped on another coat and it was still rough. Sanded it again, and applied the 3rd coat with a brush, and surprise it's nice and smooth. I am in the process of doing the 4th coat (with a brush), and I hope that it feels even better with that coat. This was more money versus regular poly, but I thought the ease of use would make up for the extra cost. It didn't, and I plan to buy regular poly for future projects.

The last time I went to buy wipe-on Poly, the Minwax wasn't available at Home Depot, they just had Watco, so I gave it a try. I have now used it on several projects and I have the following observations. Watco is more than twice as thick as Minwax. Their child-proof cap is basically human-proof. You can pry the plastic bit off with a flat-bladed screwdriver to reveal the metal cap under it, but then you'll be using large jaw pliers to get the metal cap off. Using wax paper under the cap helps on subsequent opens, but ugh, pretty annoying. Because it is thicker, you will not be able to coat and recoat as quickly. I actually would recommend 24 hours between coats, especially if you are squishing this stuff into corners. It remains tacky for a really long time - longer than other full-strength poly even. I tried thinning with mineral spirits to get it down to "wipe" thickness, but got uneven results. I'm not sure why. Yes, I mixed well. I can't recommend this product. It is not a wipe-on poly. It doesn't behave as one. Even padding it on, you will see your strokes, and that is the beauty of wipe-on, it should go on thin. This does not go on thin. I'll use this up on outdoor projects, but I will not buy Watco again. If you have used the Watco and hate it, try the Minwax brand, although you will have to go to other stores for it.
