If the result of grey stained wood floors has totally satisfied you, it’s time to move on and stain the rest of a piece. Do not forget to stick to timeframes giving the stain evenly and uniformly absorb over the entire wood item. After you’ve applied the stain, waited and finally wiped away excess stain from the entire piece, take a break for at least 8 hours. During these hours the stain will go on absorbing and will finally dry. Depending on the temperature and humidity in the work room, this process may take more time.
