White clad furniture with a latex stain; quick drying, low smoke, it adds a satin effect surfaces. Dilute the stain with water or buy a spot labeled as “pure.” Apply the product with a brush, let stand and wipe off excess. Working in small sections and time managing your work so that the stain is about the same length of time in each zone.
