Penofin Oil Stain Review

Penofin Blue has a small odor. This product is easy to apply and absorbs well into the wood. The initial appearance looks pretty good, but not great. The instructions stress wiping the stain after applying to reduce sticky finish. Even though the finish looks OK, who really wants to wipe their entire deck after staining? 14 month weathering results were the worst of anything we tested.  Severe failure, graying, color loss and mildew growth were all terrible.
