Stripping new stain off fence

Is this possible? I pressure washed our fence and applied Cabot semi transparent. Now the wife doesn't like the color she picked out. What can I do start over. I've only stain one fairly small section and I think she will want to go back with a clear coat.

If it's a water based stain, more than likely you can use a pressure washer to remove it - just be careful that you don't chew up the wood. Oil base stain will be difficult to remove.

Clear, translucent or toner stains don't normally last as long as semi-transparent stains. Normally the more pigment [and whatever goes with it] a stain has, the longer it will last. Maybe you can talk her into a semi-transparent stain of a different color
