But I can't do much more than hose it off with a little gentle agitation.

Maybe as klaatu said I should just give up the idea of a stripper and sand it instead.

Or you know a product that is designed for that purpose like BM Restore...

Basically you didn't read any of the thread. Is Amway selling this stuff nowadays?

Re: Re-staining deck prep questions


I am probably in the majority of homeowners that stain a deck the wrong way, but I liked the results.

Moved into a house that had a rather large mahogany deck that the prior own applied a solid burgundy stain. (idiot)

Stain mostly wore off, but after I got it to a point I was satisfied, I put a semi transparent stain in a pumper (with spray tip off) laid down lines of stain and spread with a stain pad. Had a brush in the back pocket if a joint needed hit.

Had two big dogs that were hard on the deck so I did this once a year. With two people, one on the pump, one on the pad, took about 1 hour. Did the rails about every five years.
