I RECIENTLY DID A DECK AND GOT SOME STAIN ON THEIR SIDING I WIPED IT OFF WITH MINERAL SPIRITS. NO PROBLEM ! BUT AFTER IT DRIED YOU COULD SEE THE AREA THAT HAD THE M.S. ON IT.
SO I WENT BACK AND USED MY HOUSE WASH ON IT WITH A BRUSH AND BUCKET AND RINSED IT OFF WITH A GARDEN HOSE. AGAIN NO PROBLEM!
GOT CALL AGAIN NOW THERE ARE WHITE SPOTS ON THE DECK. (DUMMY ME I DID NOT RINSE OFF THE DECK WELL ENOUGH BEFORE AND AFTER WASHING THE WALL) SO I USED SOME OXALIC ACID THEN CLEANED SPOTS THEN REAPPLIED A FAIRLY HEAVY COAT OF SEALER TO IT. IT LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT WORK. QUESTION? WITH THE OIL BASE SEALER DO YOU THINK THAT THE HIGHER PH DETERGENT SOAP ACTUALLY BECAME A MILD STRIPPER?

BOY SOME TIMES THESE JOBS REALLY MAKE YOU LOOK STUPID. THANKS TIM HIGHFIELD
