What does the minwax reviver contain ?

Does anyone know what does the Minwax reviver contain ? Does it have any sealing properties ? I'm asking this because previously, not knowing what I was doing, I applied this to my sanded hardwood floor (no stain no finish). Now, I'm trying to apply the stain and poly coat, but I don't if it will stain properly after previously using the Minwax reviver.

Minwax 1 qt. High-Gloss Hardwood Floor Reviver (4-Pack)-60950 - The Home Depot

I can't give you the exact answer to your question but it woud appear that you cannot just apply a stain over it. Hang tight..... the pro's will be by.

I'm not familiar with that product but stain always needs to be applied over raw wood! Stains dry more from absorption than from chemical driers and the excess always should be removed. If you just want to poly over it [no stain] you could lightly sand a small portion and apply the poly to see how it does.

Everything I know can be removed with a stripper so I have no idea what would be in that product. I would think you could apply poly over it by lightly scuff sanding it first but that's a bit of a guess.

I just did some research and someone said the Minwax reviver is just diluted waterbased poly. In that case, is there any chemical that would work well for stripping poly ? If I were to sand it down, can I go straight to using 100 grits sandpaper ? The coat looks extremely thin, almost to the point where you can't notice it. Definitely doesnt look like a layer of regular poly.

How big of a floor is it? I'd sand the wood down to raw, just like you would if you were completely refinishing the floor. The 100 grit might work but if you don't remove all of that sealer the stain won't take.

I have two small rooms about 350sq combined. I'm guessing it is small enough that I can use a handheld sander. I also found a stripper on amazon/home Depot called citric stripper (I think that's the name) with good reviews. I think I'm going to give that a try.
