RECOAT / DRY TIMES:
Preparation will affect this process - if there is wax on the surface, the finish may never adhere.
If Pledge has ever been used on a piece, there is silicone contamination, which is VERY difficult to remove.
Ideal drying conditions are 70 degrees Fahrenheit and less than 70% humidity.
If you are working outside in ideal conditions (avoid direct sunlight), be cautious about dry time.
Do not recoat until you are sure the stain is completely dry.
Other factors are -- 1) the surface you are applying the stain and -- 2) the application method.

On denser surfaces, such as an existing finish, the dry time will be longer.
A "painted" finish is thicker and will take longer to dry, than one that is wiped down or dry brushed.
