I have a 30 year old pine log home in Northern Arizona, that was treated yearly with Linseed Oil based natural wood preservative (BEHR Natural Wood Preservative to start with). I have been having trouble finding a replacement as the majority of products are now water based. Is there a method to quickly strip this old oil based preservatives and switch to a more readily available substitute.


Either sand it or have it media blasted with corn cob or glass
