I have to stain my log home and was wondering is the correct way media blasting verses using a stripper to take off the old stain and sealant? I would need to drive 150 miles to rent a media blaster. Would ”eazy strip” be just as good? Also, we used lifeline in the past but was wondering what your best feelings on stains are. I have heard that sikkens is also good, but does it let the logs breathe?Thanks.
