"WASH DOWN" PROCEDURE
Prior to any application of Ecowoodoil,
including maintenance coats:
1. Wet the timber thoroughly
2. Mix a solution of an ALKALINE
salts cleaner i.e Tricleanium as per directions on container
OR Napisan Laundry Soaker (If using Napisan use 2 capfuls
in a bucket of warm water). This diluted formula is far
safer for your plants and pets than Oxalic Acid.
Apply to wet timber surface & agitate with a stiff bristle
brush or broom. Allow to stand for 20-30 minutes before
hosing off. Repeat wash down if seen to be necessary.
4. Allow timber to dry for a minimum
of 2-3 days in good drying conditions before applying oil.
5. Prior to applying Ecowoodoil,
remember to follow the detailed instructions printed on
the can of your specific product.
Important Note: MAKE
SURE you remove sawdust, nails, metal filings and other
construction debris from on or near the timber’s surfaces
prior to and after washing & application
of Woodguard. These materials contain elements that can
leave unsightly marks on your timber should any moisture
react with them! If your new Timber has been mishandled
or rust marked, you may need to follow the procedure for
