This stain is a water-based stain that is designed to give wood a light brown color. It is made from a blend of natural and synthetic ingredients and is low in VOCs. The stain is easy to apply and dries quickly. It is a great choice for staining wooden swing sets, playhouses, and other outdoor structures. All outdoor wooden products need to be stained occasionally to maintain their vibrance and longevity. Backyard Adventures stains for swing sets include UV protection, mildew and mold inhibitors, water sealant, and our special pigment to keep your swing set looking new.
