Minwax® Water Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner helps limit the effect of grain rising on both soft and hard woods by promoting consistent penetration of Minwax® Water Based Wood Stain and Minwax® White Wash Pickling Stain.
To prepare for staining, use as the initial step in any water-based stain project on any type of wood.
Water-based pre-stain wood conditioner reduces blotching and streaking, resulting in a stunning, even stain color.
