Shake the wood stain tin well to create a perfect even colour
Protect all the areas around with masking tape to avoid staining
Soak a cloth in the stain and start rubbing it against the wood
Go along with the fibre of the wood to create perfect even surfaces
If some areas look patchy or uneven, go over one more time
Have the wood stain sealed with a two pack water based floor lacquer

You should cover at least 20 to 30 sq meters per 1L of wood stain. If you are planning to stain 2 rooms, around 40 sq meters, be sure to order 3 tins of wood stain.

Professional floor refinishing contractors can achieve over 50 sq meters of floor per 1L of wood stain if they are using a low speed floor buffer and a white floor pad. Wait 3-8 hours before overcoating the wood stain.
