For the best results

  • Surfaces (raw and previously finished) must be dry, clean, and free of dirt, grease, and glue.
  • For Raw Wood: Sand with #120-grit sandpaper followed by #180-grit or finer for a smoother finish if desired. Remove all dust.
  • Over Previously Finished Surfaces: Lightly sand surface with 400 grit sandpaper. Remove all dust.
  • To ensure uniform stain color and beautiful results on bare wood, apply BEHR Oil-Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner prior to staining. Follow label instructions.

  • Stir stain thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Do not thin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not impressed First time using this ‘gel’ type stain but the label caught my attention with the ‘3 in one’ notation. I went to Behr’s website for instructions, which seemed easy. After my first failed attempt, I went back online and found a link with slightly different information (waiting time to wipe down and wiping against the grain first). You have to work fast to get back to the first area of stain to wipe within the time limit. Otherwise, it is sticky and will wipe too much stain off or streak. I will have to re-sand and try again; BUT, have to wait until it isn’t so sticky or it balls up and sticks to sandpaper. Don’t know if I will continue with this or go back to regular stain. Glad I started on a small piece first to experiment! May just take getting used to it. Behr should ensure their instructions are consistent (one place shows waiting 3-5 minutes then wiping; the other shows 5-10 minutes then wiping across the grain first).
