I just finished building a back country shelter using three a popular logs for the ridge beams. I sawed the tree a couple of months ago and peeled the bark and stored the logs in the barn until needing them. They looked nice but as soon as I installed them on the shelter and it got rained on a few times the logs turned black with I guess mildew. Can I use clorox and water to remove the staining ??


Do not use bleach if you are going to stain them. 1 or 2 cups of bleach in a large pail of water is plenty to kill any mold spores. If you are going to stain them wash them with Log Wash from Perma Chink per label instructions.
