Our log home is 10yrs old and the stain we used was discontinued because when they change to formula to meet EPA requirements the finish no longer worked. As a result our house which was finished natural turned dark. We had someone remove the stain on the front and one side. He brushed on a chemical stripper and powerwashed it off. It worked, but now the wood has all this pulp on it. The man told us that the pulp would blend in once we applied the fresh coat of stain. Is this good adv

Absolutely not. First, if he power washed it that hard to raise that much pulp, he has driven the water very deep into the wood fiber. It should be allowed to dry for a month and then gone over with an orbital sander and 50 grit disc to knock off pulp, then apply new stain. Wood and water are not friends!
