Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interior wood satin- linen white Absolutely love it! My floors turned out beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour with Ash hardwood Used for a table I made (4 different colours) and the Cabaret turned out amazing. Easy to use, set in a bit longer than an hour but I put it on heavy, but only took 1 coat and I didn't use conditioner. Would for sure recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute garbage Garbage. Just buy the conditioner and do it the old way. Trust me. What they don’t tell you is that this is like a paint and stain hybrid. It completely covered the grain in some places and didn’t in others, it looks like I just did a bad painting job. I’ve never had a problem with a traditional conditioner then a stain. It’s thick like a paint too not like a stain. The product name is very misleading. I have to now spend half a day tomorrow sanding down a table trying to save it, thanks varathane. You lost a loyal customer with this product, I’ll be using minwax from now on. Didn’t expect it from a company who’s products I’ve loved for years. If I could give it a 0 star I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stain on the market! Great stain. I use this product for all my wood creations. Application is easy and results are satisfying. Great coverage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it.. Saw the promo for this product and was lured into buying this instead of using conditioner and stain separately. The result was pathetic. Total junk. Top one is with conditioner. Bottom one is done with Ultimate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stain on red oak Great stain. I use it with a brush then after 3 to 5 minutes wiped it with the grain in the wood to get the final finish I was looking for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pas la couleur annoncée sur le pot La couleur n'est pas du tout blanc jauni. Je n'ai même pas utilisé le pot, nous avons teint 1 côté d'une contre-marche et ça a été assez. Finalement on a juste verni 3 couches et j'ai eu la couleur que je recherchais en achetant ce pot. La couleur c'est gris sale pas blanc jauni. Un gris poussière accumulée depuis 100 ans que personne a lavé. Vraiment déçue, c'est un 30$ que j'aurai pu mettre sur autre chose qu'un pot à jeter. La couleur est de la mauvaise représentation ou il y a eu un sérieux mélange dans les étiquettes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Went on beautifully and was just the right amount of medium brown to lessen the red in my mahogany dining chairs. Did not need to sit long on the conditioned wood before reaching the right tone. There is a strong smell but I always wear a filter mask so not a problem. Would use again.

How long the smell is going to last? I did my stairs with two coats 5 days ago, and there is still strong smell in the house. Is there anything I can do to about it?

Asked by: Zoran
Hi Zoran, You may have some stagnant air holding onto odors. We recommend using fans and opening windows to help create air movement to rid of the lingering odors. We hope this new information is helpful.

Do I use a paintbrush to apply this to stairs?

Asked by: Mich
Hi Mich, Apply one coat of stain liberally with a good quality brush or clean, lint-free cloth to your stairs. Apply a test sample on a small inconspicuous area before proceeding with the entire job. Apply the stain across the grain until the wood is saturated on top. Allow to penetrate for 5-10 minutes then remove excess by wiping with a rag in the direction of the grain. Removal of all excess material is essential to ensure proper dry time and proper adhesion of topcoat.

Does this stain need a clear coat over top?

Asked by: Karyn
Hi Karyn, We do recommend clear coating to protect the stain from wear & tear. To complete your project, choose one of the many Varathane® Premium Wood Finishes. Allow Varathane Ultimate Wood Stains to dry for 1 hour before applying the finish. Darker colours may require a slightly longer dry time.
