Hi. The directions say to allow conditioner to penetrate 30 minutes. Must it then be stained immediately after 30 minutes or is there a window of time acceptable? For example, can one apply the conditioner, wipe off the excess then get back to it the next day to stain ? Thank you.
Asked by: Harry
He waited the 30 minutes or more so I don't know how it would be if he had not.

1 qt. Wood Conditioner is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works!!! This stuff works great. I was staining some ash and the finish was coming up terribly dark and blotchy all over. I ended up having to sand off all the stain and use this conditioner. I prepped the wood just like I would if I were staining it and made sure the surface was completely dust free with a tack cloth. I then added a liberal amount of the conditioner to the wood with a foam brush and let it soak in for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes I wiped up the excess conditioner and allowed the conditioner to dry for 2 hours. The directions state 30 minutes before staining but I felt that was too quick so I went with 2 hours with incredible results.
