  1. Shirts that don't get bleached by bleach! I really hat whereing Tie-dyed T-shirts while I work. I was at target two days ago and picked up one of those under armer type shirts for running and used it durring some housewashes. They don't bleach out. NO spots. They have some collard ones that I am going to pick up as a new uniform. also as far as shorts go, I have been whereing my board shorts, surf shorts, quick drys, whatever you want to call them. They don't get effected by the bleach ether. They have to be Onneil, Quicksilver, Billabong, or Volcome, etc...They look good too. even after weeks/months of cleaning under bleach. I just got a pair of kahky bordies and a black collard shirt for a new uniform. For what its worth, Dane

  3. (strip)F18 (clean)F10 from pressuretek.com. Spray it on with a pump sprayer or what ever you want. Let it sit. Use the pressure washer( white tip) to clean off the crud. Do not stop on the wood, keep the wand moving. Call me if you like, Dane
  4. seals/stains

    Hey man, at Lowes they sell a 7" pad applicator. shur-line is the brand. It comes with a red handle and refill pads. For the railings you can ether use the pad or rag or staining mitt. If our going to spray then you have to cover everything with plastic. carry a spray bottle of mineral spirits and a clean rag. If you get it on the house spray it on and wipe it off. Makes the cleanup easy. Dane

  12. I just used Flood, natural tone clear, CWF-UV on a deck. It looks sweet after two coats. It gave it a rich brown surgar tone. The railings were already painted white. I got Two coats out of less than two gallons. Sprayed on. 12x16 surface + stairs and sides. Looks awesome!

  16. Ultimate house wash uniform.

    The shirts, though more expensive, look better longer after multiple times with bleach. I had some polo's with my logo sewn on but they didn't last at all. Then I got printed t-shirts. I went through a dozen in less than a summer. Bleach, sealer/stain, rime. Image is one of the most important things in our industry. I'll try it this year and see what happens.
