Deck staining question

After I pressure wash my deck, how long does it need to dry before I stain it? Related question: Any advice for a good protective stain or finish?

It needs to dry, how long that takes depends on several things; how much sun and wind it sees along with how porous the wood is. Sometimes decks will be dry the next day while other decks might take several days. Generally you'll find better deck stains at your local paint store versus a big box paint dept. SuperDeck and Cabot are a couple of brands that come to mind.
