we just had our cedarsiding sodablasted and want to know if there is something we should clean it off with before appling stain, and also what is the recommened stain to use that hopefully we won't have to re-do for some time


You will have to neutralize the soda in the wood since it probably has messed up the PH. All stain is going to require some sort of maintenance every 3-4 years. If you use a solid color stain you can go about 7 years, but you cannot see the wood grain.
