A: It would be best if it's stirred, Bob.If you do shake the Rust-Oleum Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain, you do run the risk of bubbles in the film, so you'll need to allow the product to settle before use. It's easier to stir it to ensure quick use. We hope this helps! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1
A: Thank you for reaching out, James. Varathane Premium Fast Dry Wood Stain has some odor when applying, so we recommend applying in a well ventilated area. For lower odor products we recommend using Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Water-Based Wood Stain as it has a more subtle odor. Please also note that sensitivity to smell is different for each person, and we ask that you take all necessary action to prioritize your safety. -Rust-Oleum Product Support 14
