DIRECTIONS: SHAKE WELL BEFORE MIXING WITH WATER. Concentrated product. Do not use without diluting. General dilution is 1:9, if stronger mix is needed, use 1:7 or 1:8. If using a pump up sprayer, apply a generous coat set on strong spray. If using a pressure washer place the siphon hose directly in container or the product directly into the chemical well of the pressure washer and set pressure washer to desired dilution rate. Spray entire surface to prevent streaking. If pump up sprayer is used, keep pressure high at all times. Hold spray tip within 12 inches of surface. Wait 10 minutes, hose off or pressure wash, cutting pressure low enough so wood/shingles will not be harmed. If hose is used to rinse, adjust nozzle to strongest force and hold at distance so soft woods will not be harmed.

We had been puzzled for a couple years on how to remove a previous stain that never had cured after 2 years! We had consulted many log home restoration companies, but none knew about Top to Bottom. Finally one man knew about this and tested it on the house, and it worked like a charm, taking off the black mildew and sticky stain right down to the bare wood. For us, we diluted half gallon Top to Bottom to half gallon water. That is what worked best for us, spraying it on, waiting 30 minutes and pressure washing it off. Once we got it off, we brushed over it to settle the grain down, and that was an important step so that we didn't have to sand as much! We used plain old hand sanders with 60 grit paper and it came out like a brand new house! Now it's beautiful again!
