How to stain deck spindles and balusters.
Staining deck spindles and railings require a detail-oriented mindset. Although staining deck spindles are considered more difficult than staining the floor, we have some tips that will make this step go smoothly for a flawless, even stain application.
First, clean the deck spindles. Wash the railings with a spray nozzle attached to a garden hose to remove dirt and debris. If there are any stains, mild detergent mixed with water should remove them. If there is mildew, use oxygenated bleach. Rinse well with water.
