    Test in a small, inconspicuous area before applying to entire surface. Remove all deck furniture and decorative items Do not allow product to come into contact with metal and painted or finished surfaces, as it may cause spotting or discoloration. PROTECT SHRUBS: Wet down with water and cover with plastic. Hose off shrubs when job is done. Cover delicate vegetation to prevent damage. SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE. YOUR CLEAN WOOD WILL NEED PROTECTION FROM WATER DAMAGE AFTER CLEANING. Wait 2-3 days, depending on weather conditions, for the wood to dry thoroughly before applying an oil-based waterproofer or stain.

IMPORTANT: All surfaces must be thoroughly neutralized with Valspar All-in-One Wood Prep, rinsed and dried a minimum of 2 days, depending on temperature and humidity prior to recoating. Any stripper not rinsed from the surface will cause coating adhesion problems. IMPORTANT: USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN WORKING ON THE SURFACE TO BE STRIPPED. WOOD STRIPPER WILL CAUSE THE SURFACE TO BECOME VERY SLIPPERY. USE A FACE SHIELD OR GOGGLES WITH SIDE SHIELDS, RUBBER GLOVES AND PROTECTIVE FOOTWEAR FOR PROTECTION FROM HARMFUL CHEMICALS.
