Directions

(For Interior Use Only)

WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and clean up. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.

APPLICATION FOR SURFACES OTHER THAN HARDWOOD FLOORS

Surface Preparation:

  • Surface must be dry, clean, and free of dirt, grease, glue, and existing coatings before staining.
  • Sand the wood in the direction of the grain using fine-grade sandpaper (#220) until smooth.
  • Remove all sanding dust.
  • To ensure uniform acceptance of stain color and beautiful results, pre-treat the wood with Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner following label directions.

Product Preparation And Color Testing:

  • Stir stain thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Do not thin.
  • Always test stain on an inconspicuous area of the wood to verify desired color.

Stain Application:

  • Apply stain in the direction of the grain with a brush or clean cloth.
  • Allow the stain to penetrate 5-15 minutes to achieve desired color. The more time the stain is allowed to penetrate, the richer and darker the color will be.
  • Remove stain that has not absorbed into the wood with a clean cloth. Wipe in the direction of the grain, while blending light and dark areas to obtain uniform color. DO NOT ALLOW STAIN THAT HAS NOT PENETRATED INTO THE WOOD TO DRY ON THE WOOD SURFACE.
  • To darken the color, apply a second coat after 4-6 hours, repeating directions above. DO NOT SAND BETWEEN COATS OF STAIN.

Clear Finish Application:

Allow stain to dry for a minimum of 8 hours (dry time may be extended due to high humidity, low temperatures, or inadequate ventilation). Complete your project by applying a Minwax® clear protective finish, following label directions.

APPLICATION FOR HARDWOOD FLOORS

Surface Preparation:

  • Whether you have a bare wood floor or a floor that already has a finish on it, you will need to sand the floor to prepare it for staining and finishing. Rent or purchase a floor sander and follow the sander manufacturer’s directions to sand the surface down to bare wood, ending with 100 grit sandpaper or equivalent.
  • Remove all sanding dust. Stir stain thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Do not thin. Test stain on an inconspicuous area of the wood to verify desired color.

Stain Application:

  • Apply the stain to the floor using a clean cloth, following the direction of the grain. Work in small sections, approximately three-foot wide, running the entire length of the floor.
  • Allow the stain to penetrate for up to 5 minutes, then wipe off any stain that has not absorbed into the wood, using a clean cloth. The more time the stain is allowed to penetrate, the richer and darker the color will be. DO NOT ALLOW STAIN THAT HAS NOT PENETRATED INTO THE WOOD TO DRY ON THE WOOD SURFACE.
  • To darken the color, apply a second coat after 4-6 hours, repeating directions above. DO NOT SAND BETWEEN COATS OF STAIN.

Clear Finish Application:

Allow stain to dry for a minimum of 8 hours (dry time may be extended due to high humidity, low temperatures, or inadequate ventilation). Complete your project by applying a Minwax® clear protective finish such as Minwax Super Fast-Drying Polyurethane for Floors, Minwax Ultimate Floor Finish , or Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane , following label directions.

  • For light-colored stained hardwood floors, Minwax Ultimate Floor Finish is recommended.
  • Always spot test on an inconspicuous area or scrap piece of hardwood flooring to ensure satisfactory results.
