Cedar Siding In The Woods
"Last fall I bought a house that came with a good sized chunk of acreage. The only problem was the house that came with it had been owned by an elderly couple who had not able to do much if any maintenance on the house. Needless to say, I bought a project. Stepping into this house was like stepping back into the year it was built ... 1979. The house is in the forest and even had an actual wood stove for cooking and baking.
Anyhow, the house has cedar siding that was badly color faded and in many places covered in moss and algae. I did a far bit of research on ways to restore the cedar siding, and was hoping to find a way of doing it without using heavy chemicals.
Somewhere on the Interwebs, I came across a testimonial and some photos about Stain Solver. As the weather improved, I ordered up a test batch (2.2 lbs) to see how well it works.
I received the Stain Solver quickly and was ready to start work. I am going to be completely honest, I didn't really expect Stain Solver to work as advertised. Let's just say I have fallen victim to false advertising before and thought this would likely be another time.
I know you don't want to read my whole life story here, so I am going to get to the climax. Stain Solver worked exactly as advertised. I followed the instructions as closely as I could and the results were amazing. I was a able to do more than half of my detached two car garage (it took two days of hard work though) with the 2.2 lbs.
Again, I was very pleasantly surprised at how well Stain Solver worked and actually how far the small 2.2 lbs bottle went. Look at my pictures and you will see for yourself.
My next stop on the Interwebs is to buy more Stain Solver so I can finish the garage and start on the house.
Thanks Stain Solver.
"P.S. After I ran out of Stain Solver I had a devious thought... "Isn't OXICLEAN basically oxygen bleach? I bet it will work the same." So I tested a batch against what I had just done with Stain Solver. Guess what? The results were dismal. I am guessing OXICLEAN works about the same dish soap. It cleaned, but probably just water would clean when you're scrubbing. Anyhow, they are not the same thing. Stain Solver is far superior."
