WE HAVE STAINED OUR DECK EVERY OTHER YEAR AND EVERY YEAR WE HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE STAIN ADHERING TO THE BOTTOM OF FEET, NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS STAINS THE DECK LINER ETC. IN OUR FRUSTRATION, THIS YEAR WE SANDED OFF THE STAIN AND JUST USED SEALER..IT DOES NOT LOOK AS NICE. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR A STAIN THAT WILL NOT COME OFF ON SKIN? WE'VE USED THOMPSONS & CUPRINOL.
A deck stain should not come off on your feet. It sounds as if you are putting it on to heavy or to often and the stain is not penetrating into the wood like it suppose to.Also you will need to let the sealer weather off beofre you apply stain again as you will be back to were you were before with it sticking to your feet.
