Net-Trol is a powerful wood cleaner and brightener which restores greyed and weathered wood to its natural colour without damaging the wood’s fibres. It effortlessly removes both surface and ground-in dirt leaving the wood looking bright and vibrant. Net-Trol is fast-acting and can restore the original colour of your wood surface in as little as 15 minutes with no laborious and backbreaking sanding!

Benefits of using Net-Trol

It is safe to use on all exterior wood types and is also an excellent degreaser for use on tropical hardwoods to allow finishes like Deks Olje D1 to penetrate. Net-Trol can remove stains caused by tannin bleed and will remove all traces of weathering caused by mildew, pollution and UV rays. It will also neutralise wood surfaces which have been stripped with a stripping product such as Owatrol’s Dilunett or Prepdeck, leaving the surface ready for applying your chosen finish.

Net-Trol is not only for use on wood surfaces though – you can also use it to restore the lustre to faded plastics dulled by weathering and UV rays. It can also be used to remove rust stains and to clean discoloured stone and cement. Net-Trol is biodegradable and does not contain solvents or bleach. It’s not harmful to plants and shrubs so it’s safe to use in the garden!

    Ordered Net-Trol on Monday, arrived mid morning Tuesday.
    Slate patio cleaned of rust spots from garden table and chairs by 2.30pm. Cannot praise the product enough. Have been looking for a cleaner to remove rust for well over a year.
    No need to look any further. Thank you.

  2. Kirsty Verified Owner

    Absolutely love this product! It’s truly amazing and I really like that it’s so non aggressive and safe for plants, animals etc.
    I’ve told so many people about this product and I’m about to order more for some summer projects. Highly recommend. Also a great price as a little seems to go a long way!

    Done stripping and staining the stable block. Turned out better than expected.
    Before and after Net-Trol shots.

    I was tackling a pair of garage doors where the varnish had split and risen in places. The doors looked a mess. I started with a trial pot of dilunett and followed up with the Net Trol. I was unsure of the Dilunett and purchased a cheaper alternative. I was wrong, the problem was that the dilunett dried out in the sun very quickly on the day I tried it. However. I would use Dilunett next time. I then purchased a litre of Net trol. This stuff is frightening. I now have half the village wanting me to rejuvenate their Garage doors. I also used a drop on a very black oak door. it is now just like it was when it was delivered 20 years ago. I would recommend Net Trol .. I will be ordering more.

    Used it on a softwood garage which is 4 years old. I have just had this garage extended, to match, but the difference between new and old was extreme due to the original half having greyed and weathered in its 4 years. So I used this product as described and am very pleased with the results. The 2 halves are now as close to matching as if they had been built at the same time. I wish I could attach a photo. Highly recommended.

    I used Net-Trol on my very grey, dirty and UV stained Iriko wood windows and doors. Painted on and, after 5 minutes, pressure washed off to reveal the original wood – it was like magic! No more hours of scraping and scouring. Sealed with Aquanet and finished with wood oil – perfect! Have been recommending to everyone who will listen.

  7. Richard Fulcher Verified Owner

    Had Iroko gates fitted 3 years ago and told to use Tung oil on them to maintain them – This left them black and looking awful.
    Just finished using Aquanett, Net-Trol and D1 pro, on them and they now look as new. Really good products that really work. Could not recommend them enough.

  8. Bob Garland Verified Owner

    Better than other products we tried on near-white stone to remove rusting from fertiliser, though not wholly 100% effective. There’s a risk of using it at over-concentration strength, with mild scarring of the stone.
    Overall though, an effective product that I shall use again in the future.

  9. Diane Verified Owner

    Excellent product thank you

  10. Gary Brown Verified Owner

    Use this every year on my IPE deck, absolutely brilliant
