Minwax is simplifying the job of staining and finishing wood.

New Minwax Wood Finishing Cloths come moistened with a water-based, all-in-one stain and finish and are available in five wood tones: natural oak, maple, chestnut, walnut and dark mahogany. They even come with gloves to wear while you work.

Each package contains eight cloths, enough to stain and finish up to 50 square feet. The suggested retail price is $7.99. The cloths are just starting to hit store shelves but are expected to be widely available at hardware stores and home centers.
