1. All surfaces to be coated should be clean of any dirt and grime, mold and mildew, etc.
2. Mold and mildew should be killed with a commercial mold killer or mixture bleach/water for best results.  Wet Wood Stain does an excellent job preventing growth of new mold on the surface but will not kill existing mold or mildew in the wood.
3. All existing stain or paint must be completely removed for Wet Wood Stain to work properly and penetrate the wood.  Power washing with a commercial cleaner is recommended.

1.  Wet Wood Stain can be applied using a brush, roller, hand pump garden sprayer or airless sprayer depending on the size of the project.  Apply in one soaking coat (enough material applied so that it just stops absorbing during application) with coverage rate depending on porosity of wood.

2.  Mix contents thoroughly prior to application to make sure any settled contents properly blended.  Mix periodically during application.  Do NOT thin product

3.  Avoid pooling by back brushing/rolling surface to give a smooth consistent finish with no excess stain on the surface.

4.  A second coat may be applied.  Wait a minimum of 1 hour and maximum 2 hours before application of second coat.   The second coat must penetrate the first.

5.  Allow at least 8 hours before putting deck back into service and walking on surface.  Increase this time if temperatures are cooler or humidity is high.

6.  Clean up with hot soapy water.  Dried stain cleanup is with a little bit of mineral spirits.

Store materials in a well-protected area between 45° and 90°F. Avoid freezing temperatures, direct sunlight, and moisture. Keep away from heat sources.
