Care and Maintenance:
During the curing period of 7 days, be gentle and keep out of heavy rain if possible. Darker colours may scuff, wipe away with a damp cloth. If applying over teak, do a test patch first.
Once cured, clean with water and a damp cloth or a gentle cleaner.
Clean brushes immediately after use with warm soapy water. We recommend using olive soap.
