Minwax water based stain
I am a little disappointed in the product and offended by customer service.
I admit that I was asking a lot of the product. I tried to use it to refinish a veneered dinning table. That it left very tall brush strokes on a surface I was reluctant to sand, forced me to accept a poorer quality job. Minwax water based stain would not flow or level, it stood like old cheap acrylic paint.
I went back to the orange big box seeking solutions to my dilemma, they had heard this before and only had unofficial solutions [add wated, glycerin dish soap (surfactant)]. So I called Minwax, their stance was to promote additional purchase and failing that to blame their victim.
In short the conclusion of my conversation with them was that Minwax has no product for this application. Unless you can follow the directions 100% and to the letter, you should have no expectations of their product.
I would like to see Minwax clearly label their product.
This product is not intended for refinishing or any project that can not completely comply with the following directions.
I think that their customer service could improve profitability by just having a one word recording – Sucker-
Thanks for reading my vent, I hope that you fare better than I when dealing with Minwax.
