STEP 1:

Select your stain or sealer that will work best with your deck and climate. It would be wise to check with a stain/paint expert at your local home improvement store, they usually have knowledge on what works best in your area. Once you have your material get your Deck Pro 12" Flat and Gap Stainer ready by connecting it to a broom handle and pouring your stain into a wash basin (she got hers from the dollar store). Dip the edge of the stainer into the stain basin and then apply to the grooves between the boards.

STEP 2:

One you have stained two rows of gaps, then flip the stainer flat, dip in the stain and apply it to the top of two boards at one time. For even coverage make sure you wipe away any excess stain or sealer.
Once the project is complete you can either clean the pads on the Deck Pro or you can toss them and purchase replacement pads.
