Okay I saw another question about bleeding through paint but this is stain so it may have a different solution.
I sanded, used prestain conditioner, and minwax stain on a desk I’m attempting to restore. I noticed after coming down hours after the stain set that there were sticky bubbles of stain that popped up (after I wiped excess off).
Thinking I just didn’t wipe enough off, I sanded it back down to Redo the stain, bit after sanding it back down, grabbing a coffee, and getting ready to recoat it, I see the wood is just bleeding. See the photo below
What can I do before applying my preconditioner and stain to stop the wood from bleeding?
