My children have inherited their uncle's log cabin. He was the owner almost 20years. He did not believe in cleaning! ! The logs have many, many years of dust,
He was a smoker. The cabin was built late 30's early 40's. The longs have never been treated. The good news no mildew, or mold. They are dry as a bone! What should they use to clean the logs? Thank you for taking my question . I will look forward to your answer. Pat


If you never plan on applying a finish you can wash them with Murphy's Oil Soap per the label. If you are going to apply a finish then I would recommend a little TSP and 1 cup bleach in 5 gallons of water to wipe down with. Wipe again with clean clear warm water to rinse. You only need a little bleach.
