May 15, 2009, Newsletter Issue #167: How to Pressure Wash Timber

Tip of the Week

When it comes to pressure-washing your logs, technique is key. Follow these easy step to impressing your neighbors, and other wildlife with the cleanest logs in the forest.

* Use a Fan Spray Nozzle.
* Apply the water at an angle so it does not spray back into your face (be sure to wear safety goggles).
* Hold the nozzle at a distance, just far enough away from the surface to avoid “fuzzing” up the outer layer of wood.

At this distance, the water and detergent will be hitting the wood with tremendous force, blasting virtually all residues to Kingdom Come, while roughing up the surface for enhanced stain penetration.
