We have a 38-year-old, southern yellow pine, log home in the Texas Hill Country that needs exterior maintenance. We have resealed with TWP before and will use that again, unless you advise otherwise. But first, we need to clean the logs, and don't know how best to do this. The painters who will do the resealing want to use Sherwin Williams DeckScapes Stain & Sealer Remover, but I'm hesitant because of the water application. What do you recommend?

It will need a LIGHT wash with Log Wash per the label and then apply the same kind of stain. Call 800-564-2987 to purchase.
