Lorelei from Clearwater, Fl writes,

Is it safe to just dust off the residue from a Timbor treatment?

I brushed a solution of Timbor and water on an unfinished oak table. It left a fine dusty sheen, almost like old varnish not completely removed. I will then stain.


Timbor will only penetrate 1/4 of an inch into the wood and will leave a visible white residue on the surface. You may simply dust it off before applying the stain. If you are wanting a product that does not leave a white residue and absorbs completely through the wood, we recommend BoraCare. BoraCare will penetrate all the way into the wood and will not leave a visible residue on the surface.
