      My cotage is finished with vertical wood boards.
      As you know, with rain droping
      years after years on the gallery, balcony etc...
      the one feet and a haft down the wall got black
      with fungies either the wood was treated in that
      time with outdoor stain or not.
      Fortunatly after reading about éthylène glycol
      I gave it a try. With a garden sprayer and with 50% of
      water to dilute, I sprayed all the black stains It was
      around october and we never go there in winter.
      The year after I did not notice any chage as I came
      back there but I noticed that the spring rains washed
      away all the black (the fungies)and desapered rain
      after rains.
      I can assure you that right now my docks with that
      treatment after six ears always look as new.
      And I will never stain or paint it. Just the
      sheapest motor coolant with 50% of water.
      Take care of not breathing the mist.
