A: Happy to clear things up, Carl! Since this is an oil-based stain, an oil-based wood conditioner should be used with Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain. We recommend Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Conditioner for Oil-Based Stains. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-8-oz-Wood-Conditioner-342085/305587137 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

A: Thank you for reaching out! Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain can be used on wood surfaces that are exposed to indirect heat and do not reach temperatures above 200°F. Make sure to follow all safety and disposal instructions on the label. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
A: Happy to help! To ensure proper penetration and drying, Rust-Oleum Varathane Classic Wood Stain must be applied to a bare wood surface. The painted surface must be stripped first to ensure the proper results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3
