  1. On Our oak frame garden room the joiners had used textrol. My husband unfortunately last year has used danish oil on part of it, as the wood looked very patchy. Parts now look black what is the best way to treat, and not do it too often.. The outside wood gets a lot of very bright sun.

    1. Hi Janet,

      We would recommend removing the danish oil with Aquanett wood oil remover. You can then re-apply Textrol which is applied wet-on-wet until the wood is saturated. We would then suggest that whenever the wood begins to grey due to sun exposure you give it a quick clean with Net-Trol before reapplying Textrol. Depending on sun exposure this is likely to be every 1-3 years and doesn’t require sanding or stripping.

      If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

      Many thanks,
      The Owatrol Team
