Maximum Protection. No Flaking or Cracking.


TIMBAWASH TIMBAWASH is specifically formulated to quickly assist the removal of surface tannin from Kwila (Merbau), Spotted Gum and other eucalypts.


New Timber

Surfaces should be brushed clear of debris. Dilute TIMBAWASH 1: 3 with fresh water. Apply by spray or brush to thoroughly wet the surface. Scrubbing will improve results. Leave 10 minutes only, then hose off until clean.

IMPORTANT: this process can result in staining of the ground and adjacent areas. Furniture can be treated on lawns; alternatively protective sheets may be required. Allow timber to dry. For coating decks and pergolas we recommend EZY DECK; for outdoor furniture we recommend COLOURGUARD finishes.

Previously Coated Timber

All stains, paints and varnishes must be removed prior to using TIMBAWASH. Sand surface clean (80 then 120 grit). Hose off to clean. Then proceed as for New Timber.

TIMBAWASH is also excellent for removing mould, grease and dirt from old timber and for cleaning sanding belts.


Strongly alkaline. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.


If poisoning occurs contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water. If in eyes, hold open, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.
