Stain Markers and Touch Up Markers for Wood Furniture Repair

Comparing stain markers from a typical hardware store and a specialty supplier to see how they perform and what might work best for you. I purchased a Minwax Stain Marker, a Trade Secret Touch-Up Marker package, and a Rejuvenate Wood Furniture & Floor Repair Marker package from my local Home Hardware store. I also purchased a Mohawk Pro-Mark marker from a specialty supplier. I test these out so you learn how they work and I recommend what products work best.

Stain markers are a great touch-up solution for minor marks in wood finishes. These are used by manufacturers to repair minor marks on furniture. They often send these out to service technicians with a stain marker that matches the exact finish. These touch-up markers are now becoming available to consumers. There are a few options to choose from, but which one is best?

If you’re doing a lot furniture repair work, the Mohawk Pro-Mark stain markers perform the best. They’re the most expensive product, but they work really well. If you’re a homeowner, I recommend the Trade Secret Touch-Up Markers because they work reasonably well and they come in a 3-pack in a specific tone. There’s a dark, medium, light, and grey package each with 3 markers in them. That way you can start with the lightest colour in the package and test it out on your furniture. If that’s too light, move up to the next darkest colour. Because you’ve got 3 markers, you can find the colour that works best for your furniture.

If you’ve previously finished a piece of furniture with a Minwax stain, the Minwax Stain Markers would be good for that as you’ll get a good colour match.
