How long should I leave Minwax® Wood Finish™ on the wood?
- Allow the stain to penetrate 5 to 15 minutes. The longer the stain is left on the wood, the deeper it will penetrate. For a light tint, just wipe the excess stain off after a few minutes; for deeper, richer color, wait as long as 15 minutes.
Why is it important to wipe off the excess stain?
- The colorants in Minwax® Wood Finish™ are designed to be deposited in the wood pores, not on the surface of the wood. Any pigments allowed to remain on top of the wood will impair topcoat adhesion – causing the finish to peel.
- Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and clean up.
