    Gail Bauman:
    Is either the TWP 100 or 1500 safe to use on a dock where some stain may get into the lake? Is wood brightener safe to use over water?
    Thanks.

    The cleaner and brightener are safe for water. You should avoid getting TWP into the lake water if all possible. Being oil based it will have a "rainbow" look to the top of the water.
