I accidentally put regular wood stain on my deck. Can I restain with deck stain? Does it need any prep and how long do I need to wait until I can restain? Thank you.

Test to see if water will penetrate the wood. Lightly soak the wood and see if it beads up. If it does you will need to wash with a deck stain remover before applying a stain. If water soaks into the wood simply allow the deck to dry then apply your new stain.
