What is the benefit of using Minwax® Wipe-On Poly versus a traditional polyurethane?

  • Minwax® Wipe-On Poly is easily applied with a cloth, without any drips or brush marks. It is the perfect choice for furniture, interior doors, trim and other woodwork.

Can I use Minwax® Wipe-On Poly on floors?

  • Minwax® Wipe-On Poly provides a durable layer of topcoat protection but it is thinner than regular polyurethanes. It can be used on floors to touch up small areas that are worn or scratched. For new floors or floors that need to be refinished, Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane or Minwax® Super Fast-Drying Polyurethane for Floors should be used.

Can Minwax® Wipe-On Poly be applied over Minwax® Wood Finish™ or other stains?

  • Yes. Minwax® Wipe-On Poly is a great way to protect finished or unfinished wood. Be sure to allow wood that has been stained to dry completely before topcoating with Minwax® Wipe-On Poly.

Should Minwax® Wipe-On Poly be sanded between coats?

  • Yes. A light sanding with very fine sandpaper (#220) or fine steel wool will remove any fine particles of dust that may have settled on the finish while it was wet. Allow Minwax® Wipe-On Poly to dry 2-3 hours before applying the next coat. If a third coat is desired, repeat the same procedure.


  • Surface must be dry and free of old finishes in poor condition, wax, grease, polish, dirt or other foreign matter
  • Sand to obtain a smooth, uniform surface. Remove all dust with a damp cloth
  • If desired, apply stain, such as Minwax® Wood Finish™ Stain, to unfinished interior wood surfaces
  • Shake Water Based Wipe-On Poly container well
  • Put liberal amount Water Based Wipe-On Poly on a clean, soft, lint-free cloth and rub into the wood
  • Allow to dry at least 2-3 hours. Sand entire surface lightly with fine sandpaper (220 grit). Remove all sanding dust
  • Apply a second coat in the same manner as the first. A third coat is recommended. Repeat Step 6 before application
  • Allow final coat to dry 24 hours before normal use.
