Reply To: White blotches on Ipe Decking

@Decking decor- I have a question I hope you can answer. I have a similar light white glazing as in the photo you added (Water damage 1)
With mine it’s a brand new Ipe deck. I oiled it and it started raining 6 hours later. I’m thinking the oil perhaps didn’t dry properly and that’s why it already looks old with a light whitish haze. Can you suggest how to rectify it? As it’s new perhaps stripping it is OTT? Would Netrol be sufficient? Or do I indeed have to strip the oil and start again? Thanks in advance
