CUT TO SIZE
The Stain Pad is designed to be cut to size by the user. We sell them in single sheets approximately 6 inches by 8 inches. Stain Pad, wont fall apart no matter where you cut it so make your pad match your project. Expert Tip: For final staining of a project with lots of inside corners, cut your pad with less than 90 degree angles at two of the corners. This will allow you to use the pad to work stain into the corners.
Unlike Rags that bunch up and provide uneven pressure, Stain Pad's foam core provides even, consistent pressure throughout the application surface leaving a smooth, streak free application every time. And with its impermeable center membrane, you can use one side of the applicator to apply and the other side to wipe smooth.
Unlike similar terrycloth pads, Stain Pad's Loop-less material resists snagging on even the roughest wood. This is the perfect solution for finishing distressed and reclaimed wood projects.
Nothing is more frustrating than finding fuzz or brush bristles in your finish coat. Stain pad is designed to be lint and fuzz free, giving you the finest finish possible.

Oil soaked rag present a real fire danger. Stain Pad can drastically reduce this risk since its single layer, porous design allows oil based stains to dry prior without creating heat. While we still recommend allowing your Stain Pad to dry out in the open, away from other combustible materials, you can sleep easy knowing your safe with Stain Pad.
