DEFY Exterior Wood Stain Stripper is a biodegradable, easy-to-use deck stain remover that will remove weathered, clear, and semi-transparent wood stains and restore the natural beauty of wood surfaces. Stains and varnishes are removed with the collected dirt, mold, mildew and mill glaze.
If you are unsure whether the wood needs to be stripped or just cleaned, test a small, inconspicuous area to determine which method will provide the best results before proceeding. DEFY Exterior Wood Stain Stripper will cover 100-150 sq. ft. per gallon.
Apply a generous amount of the product with a polyester brush, roller, or pump-up sprayer. Then allow it to set for 15 minutes. Once the finish begins to lift, scrub with a stiff bristle brush in the direction of the wood grain. After scrubbing, rinse with large amounts of water in the direction of the wood grain.
Using a pressure washer, though not mandatory, will eliminate the need for scrubbing. However, particular care should be taken with a power washer to avoid damaging the wood. After rinsing, you must neutralize and brighten the wood with DEFY Wood Brightener immediately. If stubborn areas remain, repeat the application in those areas. Best to use with a stiff bristle scrub brush
The longer you let the product sit on the surface without drying the better the stripper will work. Keep wet and agitate and do not pressure wash off for at least 20 minutes. Defy exterior wood stain stripper is much stronger than Defy cleaner/stripper available in powder form. This will not remove solid-color stain.
