1-qt. Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner (4-Pack) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40.

I just refinished my historic doug fir floors side by side to some new doug fir floor installation. I would never refinish most wood without this as a precondition. I specify it on all my projects and buy it myself and stand there and make sure it goes on before the stain. Most professionals skip this step and the outcome is night and day. Reduce blotchiness!!! Read and follow the instructions.

I bought a can and tried it on my baseboard trim before staining. It was very easy to apply and the directions were very clear. After staining, there was absolutely no streaking of blotching of the stain. The color was uniform throughout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Step for staining soft woods When staining pine or other soft wood, blotching is inevitable and results in a look that is amateur. With a little extra sanding, and pre-stain conditioner, the stain absorption is consistent leaving a good looking product. Also works with hard woods when a lighter shade is desired

I did several samples on different pieces of wood and it always seemed to always let the grain of the wood be more clearly seen than without the wood conditioner. I will be using the product for now on with all my finished products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One coat did the job After an epic fail with polystain I sanded my counter top and gave it one light coat of conditioner. Let it sit overnight (per some internet suggestions) and applied the stain again. Beautiful results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not recommend I bought this product to help with a project. Not only did not prevent blotching, but it did not help with preventing over saturation. I had to take my project back to bare wood and start over.
