I'm going to be dyeing/ staining my trim today or tomorrow and wondered what people used to apply the stuff I'm drawn to either a kitchen sponge or a microfiber anyone else's ideas would be good?

what you using to die your trim?

i imagine a sponge would do a good job, you want something with a flat surface so you get an even layer

I'm using the plasticare quite a few people have used and the results and reviews made it a must have
Have done it myself mate with plasticare and just cut a piece of sponge and worked fine, wear gloves though

Honestly never been so dissapointed with the results I ended up taking it off and using boot polish to darken it where it was still streaky!!!
