WARNING! 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 cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
- Sand the wood in the direction of the grain, first using medium grade sandpaper (#120) and working your way to fine-grade (#220). Remove all sanding dust before staining.
- Pre-treat soft or porous woods such as pine, maple, alder and birch with Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner. This will help the wood evenly absorb stain color. Apply stain within two hours of pre-treatment.
PRODUCT PREPARATION & COLOR TESTING:
- Stir stain thoroughly before and occasionally during use.
- Test stain on a hidden area to verify desired color.
- To lighten any color, add Minwax Wood Finish 209 Natural to the mixture.
- Apply Wood Finish in the direction of the grain with a brush or clean cloth.
- Let the stain penetrate 5 -15 minutes to ensure you achieve the desired color.
- Remove excess stain with a clean cloth. Wipe in the direction of the grain, while blending light and dark areas to obtain uniform color.
- To Darken color, apply a second coat after 4-6 hours, repeating application directions of first coat.
- Dry times may be extended due to high humidity, low temperatures or inadequate ventilation.
CLEAR FINISH APPLICATION:
- After a minimum of 8 hours, apply a clear, protective finish such as Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane, Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane or after 24 hours, apply clear Minwax Polycrylic Protective Finish.
- Water cleanup clear finishes such as Minwax Polycrylic Protective Finish should not be used over Minwax Wood Finish Red Mahogany stain. Minwax Wood Finish Pickled Oak should be top-coated only with a water cleanup clear finish such as Minwax Polycrylic Protective Finish. Do not top-coat Minwax Wood Finish Pickled Oak with an oil-based clear finish as ambering will occur.
COVERAGE: Approximately 150 sq. per quart.
CLEANUP: Use mineral spirits or paint thinner.
Q. How long should Minwax Wood Finish be left on the wood?
Anywhere from a few seconds to 15 minutes. The longer the stain is left on the wood, the deeper it will penetrate. For a light tint, wipe the excess stain off after a few minutes; for deeper, richer color, wait as long as 15 minutes.
Q. 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.
Q. Is it necessary to sand after the Minwax Wood Finish has dried?
No. In fact, we advise against it. Sanding will result in the removal of some of the dyes and pigments in the stained wood. Since Minwax Wood Finish does not raise the grain, no sanding is necessary before top-coating.
Q. Does Minwax Wood Finish need to be top-coated?
Q. Can Minwax Wood Finish colors be mixed to create additional colors?
There may be times when a desired stain color can only be achieved by mixing two colors. Experiment with different proportions until the desired color is achieved. Then mix enough stain to complete the entire project to avoid color-matching later.
Q. Why don't some woods match the colors on the Minwax product brochures and samples?
Wood can vary in color and pore structure even within the same species. Because every piece of wood is unique, final stain color may vary. While our samples are tested for accuracy, it is always best to first test Minwax Wood Finish on a small, inconspicuous spot on the project.
The colors shown are for reference purposes only. They have been reproduced using digital production techniques. Always test stain on a hidden area of the wood to verify desired color.

I applied Cherry mixed with Early American,80/20, on red oak, for face frames and doors on cabinets. Applied with foam brush. Wiped off with 2 paper towels in direction of grain after 10 minutes. Allowed to dry completely for 18 hours. Not necessary to apply heavy coat. Just apply product in direction of grain and work into wood. Followed up with Cherry, 100 percent. Because I wanted a rich mahogany color, I did not wipe stain off. I let dry over night. The results were wonderful! I finished using satin polyurethane...
My family has always trusted Minwax when it comes to staining wood floors and just about everything else thats wood and need stain. I remember as small child my dad mixing and stirring the Minwax stain before staining the hardwood floors he just installed in the living room. They came out absolutely fabulous. Even years later everyone remarked how great the floor looked. You must use a Polyurethane or top coat over a stain product that doesnt have a finishing component in it. I suggest that you use a Minwax stain and then a top coat for the best results. Sure its more work and more expensive but its well worth it...
Minwax wood stain...This is something my family has used for years. My grandmother used this on high traffic areas on her wood floors. Then when she passed away I purchased her house & removed all the carpet to reveal the wood floors. So I go to the store to buy my MinWax all was going great until I got to my bedroom I bought too dark of stain & I was getting tired & did not even pay attention & began put this on, so it was buyers remorse my fault. So my bedroom is stained in a different color & I did not want to sand down the floor & re-stain it, I just left it the way it was. MinWax does last along time on your wood floors if put on properly. We also used a lot of MinWax on various 4-H projects for the kids, from staining wood boards for the kids rocket stands, to back board for display items, to furniture they made & much more. You can even use Minwax to shine up furniture that may of lost their gloss as they do have various color coordination\'s. So from my family to yours this is a great product & would highly recommend this to anyone. It is simple to use also, you can brush it on or apply it with a soft rag & it will come out evenly if used appropriately...
Minwax has been on the shelves of hardware stores for years. I remember seeing this brand\'s yellow cans stocked on shelves of the local hardware store - since I was 5 years old, and my pops would take me shopping with him. I recently remodeled a room in our house and made a set of wooden cabinets built into the room. I already knew what to stain to buy. Minwax. Definitely. All it took was one coat of Minwax stain to penetrate the wood and make it look beautiful. No problems, and never had any with their products. Whatever your project, if you need to stain wood, don\'t go with another brand. Definite Must Buy!..
I spent one hellish summer working for a hole-in-the-wall hardwood floor company in Florida (anyone familiar with the Miami knows it's no place to spend a summer, especially cooped up in a house with all the doors and windows wide open and the air conditioner turned off so that we would not all gag and die from breathing wood dust and turpentine). The owner of this company a man who called me a BOY for insisting to wear a filter mask over my mouth and nose while sanding floors, likely dead for decades now from one pulmonary ailment or anotherï¿½was one of the cheapest men I have ever known. Therefore, he settled on lesser quality products, such as floor stain. As a result, the company received many complaints for shoddy work. Not surprisingly, theyï¿½ve been out of business for quite some time.
When it comes to staining my own furniture, I always choose Minwax. It doesnï¿½t streak, dries quickly and lends realistic tones to inferior woods, such as pine. And a single can goes a long way. In fact, I think Iï¿½ve been using the same can since I was in my twenties, which must be several millennia by now...
