Prepping Doors for Staining or Painting
After sanding it is time to clean the door with a cloth. Remove all dust or foreign material. Avoid using caustic or abrasive cleaners. All surfaces of the door must be properly dry and free of dirt.
On doors with glass, the finish used should be flowed from the wood slightly onto the glass. This will protect against water leakage and will keep the "putty" from drying out.
