Cleaning of oak 2 by's
by Dirk Fishback
I have a bunch of oak 2x10's from an old barn. They have been white washed. Was wondering if there is a cleaner that will help remove the white wash? I have a pressure washer I have been using but goes very slowly. Thought there might be a solvent or something I could use to help remove it more easily without damaging the wood. Any advice would be great.
Thanks for your question. The only technique I have used to remove white wash is the very same technique you are using already.
The only alternative I can think of is that possibly media blasting would work, using walnut shells perhaps.
Maybe someone in the community will have a better idea and be able to answer you in the comments below.
