How to use Cuprinol Garden Furniture Stain

Wooden garden furniture can be costly, so it makes sense to take good care of it. Follow Disco Shed owner Paddy’s tips on how to use Cuprinol Hardwood & Softwood Garden Furniture Stain.

Untreated wooden garden furniture can quickly begin to suffer from a number of problems, such as greying of the wood's colour or the growth of mould and algae. Easy to apply on all types of wooden furniture, Cuprinol Hardwood & Softwood Garden Furniture Stain creates a long-lasting water-repellant barrier to keep your furniture looking as good as the day you bought it...

Cuprinol Garden Furniture Stain


1) Remove any excessive dirt or soiling from the furniture with a scraper or a stiff brush.
2) Wearing gloves, stir the product thoroughly.
3) Apply using a paintbrush. Work along the grain, avoiding overlapping. Leave the furniture to dry for 2-6 hours between coats, or longer if you're working in poor weather conditions. Allow a few days before heavy use or contact with soft furnishing such as cushions or sheets to avoid damaging the finish.

Cuprinol Hardwood & Softwood Garden Furniture Stain is available in five colours including Clear, Antique Pine, Mahogany, Oak and Teak. Get more product information and usage tips on the Cuprinol website.

Paddy's top tip:

"The final colour result will vary depending on the type of wood you're staining. After staining, the colour on soft woods like pine will be vibrant while the colour result on hard woods like teak will be more subtle. If you're worried about the final colour finish, test your stain in an inconspicuous area first".
