There are MANY types of finishing options out there. You may have heard of minwax, varethane, etc but what else?
Most of these contain VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and require some type of finish coating to seal. The stain itself also has to be applied in multiples sometimes to get the right color.
I am fully transitioning over to non-voc based products and those that do not require multiple layers.
This is ultimately better for our health and significantly reduces waste; less packaging, less containers, less chemicals. I plan on being around for a long time!
This stuff is great, and worth the money:
Requires a single coat (economical)
0% VOCs or water
Plant-based & non-polluting
This is another great product and offers an alternate to rubio monocoat:
amazing coverage (less is more)
