Question:


I have a log home that when it was built was treated with old motor oil. It was done several years after I bought it and is now soaked into the logs. how can i remove the oil. Maybe with sand blasting or pressurewashig with some sort of solvent, Pleaes advise. thank you

Answer:

John:

There's no real good way toget ridof this oil that has soaked into the wood. The best option is to try and sandblasted it off, but I'm afraid that it will still have an oil residue in the wood which will not allow stain stick to it properly, sanding may help.
