    Hello All,
    Our local village hall is clad in cedar wood and treated with Osmo. It appears not to have been done properly and is a mess. We started to sand it off but as it's patchy (some comes off easy, the rest has actually soaked in/bonded) we're wondering if this is the right way to be doing it? Also we were thinking of using a stain (Sadolin) afterwards or would something else be better/cheaper. Have tried contacting Osmo but not a huge help. Pics below, any thoughts or suggestions

    Cheers...Chris

    AFAIK Methyl Chloride paint stripper (the "old skool" paint stripper) will remove it but it was reclassified as a "professional use only" product because of the health risks.

    The smallest quantity that it can be sold in is 5L.

    Only consider using it if you are willing to familiarise yourself with the requisite safety precautions before hand.
