Ronseal 5 Year Woodstain

Woodstains protect and colour wood without hiding the grain. With this Woodstain you'll get 5 years of protection. You do have to put three coats on but that means you won't have to do it next year, the year after that, the year after that, or the year after that. (You get the idea)

 Before You Start

Make sure it's a dry day (above 10°c) and the wood is clean and dry.

Prep - Stained or Varnished Wood

Give the wood a good sand to make sure the woodstain sticks. Then clean with white spirit and leave to dry.  

Prep - New Wood

Give the wood a light sand, clean any dirt or dust with white spirit and leave to dry. 
Wear a face mask to avoid breathing in any dust.
If you're treating veneer, follow the suppliers guidelines. Check you're happy with the colour of the stain by testing it on a small hidden patch of wood.

Using 5 Year Woodstain

First, give the tin a stir then brush on in the direction of the grain. 

You'll need to put on 3 coats leaving 4 hours between coats. Before the final coat lightly sand the wood, this will help the stain stick and give a smoother finish. If you get any stain on yourself, wash it off with warm, soapy water. 

Usage Areas: All smooth planed exterior wood. Not suitable for decking. 
Compatibility: New or previously stained wood.
Clean Up: Clean all brushes in warm, soapy water.
