Varathane Premium Wood Conditioner is an oil-based wood conditioner which prepares soft woods for more even color and stain. Particularly, it prevents woods from irregular wood stain and color. This product is suitable to use for tables, chairs, doors, trim, floors, paneling, cabinets etc. Pine, fir, alder, birch and other soft woods have uneven grain structure which may cause uneven, blotchy color without proper conditioning. Therefore proper conditioning is suggested.

How to Apply Varathane Premium Wood Conditioner?
Previously Finished Surface - Remove the old coating by sanding or stripping to bare wood. To prepare bare wood for conditioning, begin by sanding in the direction of the grain. Begin with 120 grit sandpaper and progress though 150, 180 and 220 grits.
Before conditioning the wood, remove all sanding dust using a vacuum, tack cloth, or rag dampened with mineral spirits. Make sure the wood surface is dry, clean, and free of dirt and dust. Remove any grease or glue with a rag dampened with mineral spirits.
Use only when air (ambient) temperature is between 55- 90°F (13-32°C) and relative humidity is below 85%. Stir the contents thoroughly before use. Apply with a brush or clean, lint-free cloth. Apply the conditioner across the grain until the wood is saturated on top. Wipe the excess wood conditioner off in the direction of the wood grain. Do not let the conditioner dry before wiping off the excess. Allow the conditioner to penetrate for 30 minutes before staining.
