Too much stain!!!
 
We just built a deck and stained it. Unfortunately, we used entirely too much stain and now it looks awful. My husband used a rag and some mineral spirits on a section and it looks great, it's just so very time consuming and breathing in those fumes for a long period of time isn't good either. Does anyone have any better suggestions??? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi bloomgirl96
Welcome to the site

Unfortunately, there is not a good cure for your problem
Stain is tricky, and there's no real fix for too much (blotchy) stain

If the mineral spirits is working, then go for it
But wear a VOC rated respirator

Other than that, you are talking a total strip (not easy on new stain) or flipping the boards (also not easy-and not a good idea if you placed them with the correct side up) and re-staining
