Scratches and gouges, nicks and scuffs: If you have stained wood flooring, furniture, trim or cabinetry, any such minor imperfections can drive you a little crazy. Of course, you can always refinish the wood, but doing so takes time and effort, or if you hire out the job, a sizable chunk of change. Thank goodness there's an alternative. Available in a wide range of colors (including Cherry, Mahogany, Golden Oak and Dark Walnut), the Minwax Wood Finish Stain Marker makes surface touch-ups not only quick and easy, but very inexpensive as well. Available at Amazon; $5.98.
