  • not really sure the difference other than i used both and i prefer the oil based stain cause its easier to clean the item after its put and it looks nicer. we did regular stain for my coffee table and every time we go to clean some of the stain comes off...maybe i did it wrong. but the oil stain i used on the dressers and bookshelf doesnt do that ..hope that helps not an expert at that stuff
