Water-based poly - how to apply 2nd coat


I'm putting Minwax water-based poly on the floors tomorrow (just finished sanding them now). The mfctr instructions say to apply the coats at 2-3hr intervals, but then also say to not walk on them for 24hrs. So what's the deal? Should I put on some soft-bottomed shoes and just tread lightly?

Thanks!

Water-based poly - how to apply 2nd coat


i did my fathers's house twice in water based (10 years apart), and a few other houses with oil-based... and just did the 2nd and 3rd coat with either application in fresh clean socks, no marks were left.

no idea if that's what a profesional would do, but worked out fine for me.
