Can this be used on mobile home cabinets? I want to go darker, but don't want to strip and restain.

Asked by: Michele
I would assume you could use it for that. I applied it to my front doors without stripping the previous stain and it turned out well.

1 qt. Hickory Gel Stain is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is easy to use !!! Great product !! Stained my front entry fiberglass door and the result was excellent, I never used gel stain before and after a few minutes of getting used to the consistency, application was a simple.. I'm not really sure why I'm reading about wiping the gel stain off with rags because that's totally not necessary.. the key is to have the right amount of stain on the brush and door and if to much in a certain area just blend it to a lesser sealed area ..2 tips that I've realized during application 1. make sure you stir stain frequently ( like every 15 mins) 2. Make sure your in a well lit area because u wanna see excess stain or drips you my have missed because going over an area thats drying isnt going to give you the best result.

Our front doors, which are a wood/fiberglass composite, started to fade after several years. I was told I need to strip the existing stain with a chemical remover and then reapply a new stain. Since I didn't want to mess with chemicals on a vertical surface, I decided to skip this step and just use gel stain over the existing stain. I cleaned the doors with a damp cloth, put some painters tape around the windows and handles, and started staining. It goes on easy (has the consistency of pudding as opposed to standard liquid stain) and doesn't drip near as much. After applying in sections, I wiped the excess with a rag (I strongly suggest wearing rubber gloves to keep the stain off your hands). I was so happy with the result, I went ahead and did my shutters. I was able to do two doors and three large window shutters, and I still have stain left over for future touch ups. Great product that I will buy again in the future.

You can paint it on furniture doors, vanities, etc. I painted those old wooden slat bifold closet doors and the result was perfection. It is a bit more expensive and I couldn't bother figuring out how to clean the brushes so I bought cheap throw away ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used to create faux wood garage door look I got the idea to use this gel stain to paint my metal garage door to look like wood. I'm thrilled with the results. Power washed the door, painted the gel stain on, still need to cover it with a poly topcoat but made my door look like new! Only took about 3 hours start to finish and total cost was under $20 for stain and brushes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stained logo into wood with this stain I used this gel stain to stain my wife's logo on to wood. I attached a 1 minute video of how I did it. I tried a few different tests beforehand, and decided to use shellac as a pre-stain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great on Pine I used this on a pine bench I made from dimensional lumber. I applied the Minwax wood conditioner first, and selected a gel stain since pine is prone to being blotchy. After following the directions, I got great results! Some notes on the existing reviewers' squabbles: - This gel stain IS meant to be wiped off after a few minutes. Just about all stains except for products like Polyshades are meant to have the excess wiped off a few minutes after initial application. Don't believe me? Go look up Minwax's instructions on their website. - The gel stain will start to get gummy after about 5 minutes. Work fast, or you will have a mess on your hands, as one reviewer noted. Their problem was that they waited too long to remove the stain in hopes that it would turn out darker. For a darker result, the instructions specifically state that a second coat should be applied.
