Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner
|Designed for use before applying oil-based stains, this wood conditioner ensures even stain penetration on soft or porous woods such as pine, fir, spruce, maple, alder and aspen. Helps prevent streaking and blotching. Many soft or porous woods, like pine and maple, have a tendency to absorb stain unevenly. This product penetrates the grain of the wood to promote uniform acceptance of stain. To determine if you are working with softwood, press your fingernail against a hidden section of the wood. If you make a dent, the wood is soft and probably needs conditioning. Pre-Stain should be used to avoid an uneven stain color.
