These products are low odor and clean up easily with soap and water. To give furniture a durable finish, apply Minwax(r) Polycrylic(r) Protective Finish, a hard, crystal clear, ultra-fast drying, low odor finish, that easily cleans up with water. For floors, apply Minwax® Water-Based Polyurethane for Floors, which offers superior durability in a water-based finish that is ultra-fast drying, low odor, and easy clean up with water.
