How long until stain...?


Years ago, with lots of help from you all, I stripped, brightened and stained an old deck that had been sitting for years.  

We just had a small pressure treated deck built around a portion of our pool yesterday.  I remember back in the day there was a certain amount of time suggested for the wood to dry out before stripping and brightening.  What is the recommended time now days?  Of course the wife wants it done yesterday but I'm not doing it until it's time.

Also, I used an Armstrong Clark semi-transparent stain back then.  Is this still a good option or are there better ones out there?

Thanks All

Typically a day is good enough dry time if you have warm temps and sun exposure to help it dry out.
If not, give it 2 days so that the sealer can penetrate appropriately.
Armstrong Clark is still a viable option. We use TWP 1500 series.
