What is a good alternative product to Minwax?
We are refinishing hardwood floors and want something green, with zero or low VOCs. We are planning to use Bona Traffic for the seal and finish, but what about the stain? Our contractor recommended Minwax, but how green is that product? Are there better, healthier alternatives?
Vermont Natural Coatings makes a VOC-free, nontoxic line of stains and finishes.
- They are available nationally. Visit Vermont Natural Coatings website directly.
- And the Green Living and Building Center can ship them to you if you like. (Disclosure: I am one of the owners of the Green Living and Building Center.)
Vermont Natural Coatings also makes a clear, nontoxic, VOC-free sealer using whey.
