How to Maintain Your Brushes After Using Outdoor Wood Stains and Treatments

Welcome DIY enthusiasts! Ready to level up your outdoor space with Timbashield's magic touch? Fantastic! Now, let's talk about something crucial and often overlooked—keeping those trusty brushes in top-notch shape after working wonders with outdoor wood treatments.

It's not just about preserving your tools; it's about making your outdoor spaces look great every time. In this guide, we'll walk you through the recommended cleaning methods for various Timbashield products, emphasising the importance of preserving both your tools and the quality of your outdoor spaces.

Wood Protector

When using Timbashield's Wood Protector, which is a solvent-based product, it's essential to wash your brushes with white spirit. Avoid using water, as it's not suitable for cleaning solvent-based products. By following this advice, you ensure that your brushes are ready for the next application and maintain the effectiveness of the Wood Protector.

Shed & Fence Protector

For brushes used with Timbashield's Shed & Fence Protector, a straightforward approach is recommended. Clean your brushes with soap and water. This water-based product allows for easy cleaning, ensuring your tools are ready for future projects without complications.

Decking Protector

Now, let's talk about Decking Protector. It's a water-based superstar, but don't be fooled. When it comes to cleaning, white spirit is the answer. Due to the high content of hydrophobic oils and wax it needs a bit of spirit to keep it in check. Got some wax build-up mid-project? A quick dip in white spirit, and you're back in action, ready to revive your deck.

Water Sealer

Considering it's a water-based product, Timbashield's Water Sealer requires a simple and straightforward cleaning method. Brushes used with this product should be washed with water and soap.

Wood Preserver / Primer

Timbashield's Wood Preserver / Primer is another versatile product in the line-up. For proper maintenance of your brushes, clean them immediately after use with warm soapy water. Follow up with a rinse using clear water or use a commercial brush cleaner for thorough cleaning.

Final Thoughts

Properly cleaning your brushes after using Timbashield's stains and treatments is a fundamental practice for any outdoor wood enthusiast. Whether you've applied the Wood Protector, Shed & Fence Protector, Decking Protector, Water Sealer, or Wood Preserver / Primer, adhering to the recommended cleaning methods ensures that your tools remain in excellent condition and ready for the next project.

Remember, a little post-application care goes a long way in maintaining the beauty and protection of your outdoor timber. Keep your brushes clean, and you'll continue to enjoy the lasting benefits of Timbashield's exceptional wood care products.
