our cabin is two years old, stained and sealed with sikkens,color cedar. Condition is good but looks as if it needs to be freshened up. What is to be done to prep logs and do we use on it? Both,what is it called Cepal 1 & 23? Thanks for any input. Rick



You should wash it with Log Wash, repair any breaks in chink or caulk and then applyone coat of Sikkens Log & Siding stain. The Cetol 1 & 23 has been discontinued and the Log and Siding works well over the old stuff. Call Timeless Wood Care Products at 800-564-2987 for these items.
