NFT: Deck staining advice

Dave in PA : 5/8/2018 7:50 am
I got Behr stain and sealer in one and applied 2 coats this past Saturday. I cleaned the deck using the recommended product prior to as well. At this point the deck is not exactly sticky, but a little tacky. I suspect I applied too much of the stain and whatever didnít absorb is just sitting on top. Question is, should I just wait this out a couple more days or even weeks in hopes that it will fully dry or absorb eventually, or is there a product I can apply that will remove whatever excess stain didnít absorb?

Has it been rained on at all? What has the temperature gotten to at night?

Yes it has moderately rained twice since I finished. It has been in the high 50s at night
I would wait it out

It should dry and become less tacky and eventually dry to the touch but the rain and low temps are delaying the curing process. If after a week of good weather the problems persists, call the manufacturer for recommendations.
more than likely

you re-coated too soon. I'd go on Behr's site and check with their customer service.
