General Finishes Water Based Pre-Stain Conditioner is a formula similar to our water-based stains without the colorant. This product bridges the gaps between the particles of your wood, making stains and dyes flow more evenly. Applying this product prior to your stain will give you more time to work your stain over the surface and achieve more even coverage. Use General Finishes Pre-Stain Conditioner Natural as a wood conditioner to control blotching on hard-to-stain woods, such as maple, pine and cherry, before applying a water-based wood stain.
General Finishes Pre Stain Wood Conditioner can also be used to dilute the colour of our waterbased Dye Stain and Wood Stain if you require a more translucent colour, ie fewer pigments.
