Hi I'm afraid I mess up my project and did not follow the instructions to the letter and now its all blotchy. Is it possible to sand it all down and start all over again?
Asked by: terry
Hello. Yes, in order to use the Prestain Wood Conditioner you will need to sand down to bare wood. Once it is applied you will need to stain within the recommended time on the label. Regards, Minwax Customer Support

Is there pre-stain that is orderless?

Is there pre-stain that is orderless?
Asked by: Rick
I do not think that there is a completely odorless pre stain. The best thing to do is to always wear a good respirator and have goiod ventilation every time.

1 qt. Water Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.

If you use the normal oil based line of Minwax or any ones oil based stains, or wait 24 hours to apply your stain, it will be like you applied nothing at all. After applying the conditioner, make sure all areas are covered, wipe off excess, and apply the stain within 30 minutes. This product works great, just as it is intended to do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't seem to work for me I used this product as the directions state as I was finishing an oak bookcase that I'd purchased unfinished. When I applied the Minwax pickling finish, I still got blotches, which applying this product first was supposed to prevent. It didn't. I am very disappointed in the appearance of my bookcase, and am looking for a professional to redo this for me. Perhaps if one isn't looking for the lovely finished products the Minwax videos and pictures show, and you want the messy look, then this is for you; but if you want a nice looking finished project, don't get this. Didn't work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ratings At this point I have not used it yet but, it had very high ratings in my woodworking community. I have a big project coming up soon and will be using it then. I will be updating it more later.
