Questions & Answers

how long does it take to dry

how long does it take to dry
Asked by: Paul
It all depends on the ambient temp. I'm in Michigan and I waited, needed or not, 8 hours before adding another coat of stain.. It dried to the touch in less than an hour.

1 qt. Classic Water-Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner (2-Pack) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.

The product detail on HomeDepot.com states that this pre-stain covers up to 220 sq. ft./quart, but when we received our order, the back of each quart clearly states that it only covers 125 sq. ft. We had to order twice as much. So much for it being a good deal.

The other half I applied only the Varathane stain. Couldn't tell the difference other than the Pre-Stain half was harder to stain. Also the smell was obnoxiously sickening.

Having been a Minwax user for many years, I was frankly hesitant to try Varathane for the first time. However, my reservations were unfounded. This product works just as I had hoped.
