wood conditioner question?
PDF versionPDF version

I was looking at  Blue and Orange for wood conditioner. They both carrry Minwax, one is water-based and the other looks like it's oil-based (it didn't actually say, only that it cleans up with mineral spirits). Does it matter which one I use? Is there a difference, aside from cleanup methods? Is there one I can use under water- and oil-based stains? It would be nice to have a multifunction conditioner for different projects.

IIRC, you can always use oil under water, but never water under oil.  Once you water you have to always water (paint, stain, whatever...talking about layers, not completely stripping and refinishing ;) )
