    Update. After the 20 gal. vs 5 gal. stripper issue was resolved, I'm happy to report that the stripper worked [b]very[/b] well, and the restoration project turned out beautifully!!. I even stripped the posts and rails because the stripper was so effective at removing the unwanted opaque stain! Thanks for all the help.

    After stripping and restaining with TWP 100 my 10 year old, 650 sq. ft. deck looks like new at a cost of less than $250. I couldn't be happier. My deck finally looks like I want it to.

    Greg N, yes you should weather then prep with the Gemini Restore Kit since you sanded so fine with 220 grit.

    Just purchased some rough sawn cedar pickets, each of which I am now sanding to smooth, 220 grit finished boards, and when finished intend to use to build a fence. I plan to protect this fence using the 1500series stain/preservative.

    I expect just as with a deck, I will need to allow at least 4 months for this fence to weather prior to application, does that mean without ANY protectant?

    After the 4 months, will I need to still prep the wood prior to staining, if I am now sanding off any existing mill glaze?

    Thanks for all the help...it looks like I received the right product...just the wrong label. I hate to be a PITA, but I'm glad I asked. Had I mixed the stripper at roughly 1/4 the recommended strength, it would have been ineffective and I would have been an unsatisfied customer. Now I know not to try to make 20 gallons of liquid from a container meant to make 5 gallons!!

    The stripper has small little chunks in it and has a yellow tint. It will also make you cough if you inhale the dust.

    That explains it. The package I received was mislabeled. The label has a banner saying "Makes 20 Gallons". It also says "Net Weight 128 oz." which would be 8 lbs. Although the container is heavy, in retrospect it's not 8 lbs. Now I just hope it actually contains stripper and not cleaner or brightener because I bought all three products. Is there any way to tell which is which? Crystals vs powder? Color? Odor?

    Nick, the Restore A Deck stripper we sell on this site is only 32 oz and only makes 5 gallons. We do have a larger version but we do not sell this on the website. It is possible you got a wrong sticker.

    Sorry...I guess I wasn't clear. The mixing instructions for the cleaner are clear. My original question concerned the mixing of the [i][b]Stripper[/b][/i] which should make [b]20 gals.[/b] of liquid product. You can't make 20 gals. of liquid if you use a cup (8 oz.) of powder per gallon and you only have 32 oz. of power by volume. The [i][b]Stripper[/b][/i] package only lists [i][b]Net Weight [/b][/i]of 128 Oz. No mention of a 32 oz. volume. Assuming 32 oz. volume I'd need about 1/5 cup of powder per gallon of liquid [i][b]Stripper[/b][/i]. I'll convert that into tablespoons and mix it that way.

    Nick, you are making this a lot harder then need be. Take a measuring cup which is 8 oz and add fill it with the powder. Add that to one gallon of water. You have a total of 32 oz of powder (by volume) in the container. Depending on the strength, you can make 4-5 gallons of liquid detergent.

    I don't mean to be difficult, but that just [b]can't[/b] be right. 128 oz. Net Wt./20 gals. = 6.4 oz. per gallon by weight. 6.4 oz by volume = .8 cup x 20 gals. = 16 cups = 1 gallon. The container definitely does NOT contain a gallon of crystals! I think I'll get out my postage scale, measure 6.4 oz. and see what volumetric measure that amount of product fills.

    The 6-10 oz is volume not weight.

    The stripper instructions say to mix 6 to 10 oz. of crystals in a gallon of water. Can you give me mixing instructions using volume instead of weight? What volume of product = 1 oz? Tbls?, 1/4 cup?
