Retique It® liquid wood is perfect for transforming your kitchen or bathroom counter tops a genuine wood finish. Works great on laminate, granite or virtually any other hard surface the counter tops may be.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Clean off the countertops with Dawn dish soap and warm water.

  • Allow stain to dry for at least 24 hours.

*Final Step* - We recommend using Fiddes Hard Wax Oil or CrystalLac® Extreme Protection Polyurethane. If you are staining your counter tops a light color then you should only use Crystallac® because Fiddes will yellow the finish. We also suggest using 3 to 4 coats for extra protection.
