Applying stain to woodworking projects can be a messy job but this solution should help. Pour the stain into a plant spray bottle (about a dollar at most home centers) after it has been thoroughly stirred. Now you can apply the stain with a squeeze of the spray bottle trigger and simply rub it in with a rag. Be sure to shake the bottle occasionally so the stain remains mixed.
