How to use Multi-Purpose Wood Treatment

Before you start


  1. Use a brush or sprayer to apply a thin coat to your wood. End grains should be dipped and don’t forget about joints too.
  2. Wait roughly 1-2 hours for the first coat to dry.
  3. Apply the second coat.
  4. Wait roughly 1-2 hours for the second coat to dry.
  5. Apply the third coat.
  6. After 24 hours your wood will be ready to paint over.

Multi-Purpose Wood Treatment is suitable for brand new wood. If you treat it at the beginning, you won’t have to worry about it.



Remove as much product from your brush or sprayer as possible and then clean it in warm soapy water.

You should never pour unused treatment down the drain. Instead, contact your local council for information on the proper way to dispose of it.


Multi-Purpose Wood Treatment can be varnished, oiled or painted over. It will protect again all future infestations and put a stop to wet and dry rot.
