It gets on your hands and won't wash off unless oyu use a stain solvent depending on what kind of stain you use it can "hide" the grain, it can fade with time, it is oily and sometimes you have to wait for a couple days before you can put a finish over the wood, it is difficult to match in case someone wants to make a repair or add similar products and finally, if you aren't familiar with it, it can be difficult to apply without making streaks.
