Where to Use

For use on bare or unfinished interior wood including floors, doors, woodwork, furniture and cabinets.

Preparing Your Surfaces

General: Clean and dry surface thoroughly, removing all dirt, dust, wax and wood marks.
New Wood: Lightly wipe surface of clean wood with a damp sponge to raise the grain. Allow to dry and then sand smooth. Repeat process if not smooth. Remove sanding dust before staining. Use Cabot® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner when staining soft-grained wood such as pine or plywood.
Painted or Varnished Wood: Remove all paint and varnish with sandpaper or paint and varnish remover following manufacturer's instructions and safety precautions. Then, follow new wood instructions.


Stir well before and frequently during use. Intermix containers of the same color. Before staining entire surface, always check color by applying stain to an extra piece of the same wood. Apply a uniform coat of stain using a clean, lint free cloth or natural bristle brush. On rough-textured surfaces, a brush pad may be used. Depth of color can be controlled by wiping the stain with a clean, lint free cloth to remove the desired amount of excess stain. If a deeper color is desired, an additional application of stain may be applied after the first coat is dry. Sand lightly and finish with Cabot® Polyurethane or Varnish.

Cleanup and Disposal

Clean brushes and equipment with mineral spirits. Dispose of empty cans or unused portion in accordance with local, state and federal regulations. Close container when not in use. Soak oily rags, lambswool, steel wool, cloths or any other material in water after use to avoid spontaneous combustion. Danger: Rags, steel wood or waste soaked with this product may spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. Immediately after each use, place rags, steel wool or waste in a sealed, water-filled metal container. Dispose of according to local regulations.
