We are building a cabin in Wisconsin. We cut the trees (jack pine) from our land and made them into logs. Logs have been drying for a year, but are grey now. What would you recommend to clean them and stain them with, please give us you recommended brand of products. Also when is the best time to wash the logs, before or after they are up? Are there any good on-line guidelines?


Wash them after they are up with either Oxcon or PS100 to bring the color back a little. Stay back with that power washer. Use it only to mist the brightner off. Call Timeless Wood Care at 800-564-2987 for more help and the materials you need.
