Net-Trol is a powerful wood cleaner and brightener. Grayed and weathered wood can be restored to its natural color with Net-Trol, without damaging the wood’s fibers. It effortlessly removes both surface and ground-in dirt leaving the wood looking bright and vibrant.

It is safe to use on all exterior wood types and is also an excellent degreaser for use on tropical hardwoods to allow finishes like Deks Olje D1 to penetrate. Net-Trol can remove stains caused by tannin bleed and will remove all traces of weathering caused by mildew, pollution and UV rays.

Why should I use Net-Trol?

Net-Trol is fast-acting and easy to apply. It can work in just 15 minutes and can be applied with a brush or roller. Unlike bleach or chlorine-based cleaners, it is not harmful to the fibers of the wood. It is also harmless to plants and shrubs so it can be safely used in your yard. Net-Trol is water-based and so can simply be rinsed with water and a brush or a pressure washer.

It is also great for use on other surfaces – it can restore plastics faded by UV rays, remove rust stains and other discoloration from stone and cement and can even be used as a degreaser before applying finishes to tropical hardwoods. It is safe for use on all wood species and can also be used as a neutralizer after using a stripping product such as Prepdeck.

    I used the net-trol to remove water stains from exterior stone walls. It is one of the only products I’ve ever bought that worked as advertised. The walls are beautiful. Excellent product

    I had the trim on my building that had been exposed to the weather for a year and the pine turned black from the exposure. I used the Net-trol as instructed and the result was amazing! The pine looks original and is ready to be treated before winter sets in.
    Thank you for such a fine product!!
    I wish I could send pictures!!

    I used this on the teak on my boat and the results were amazing. I wetted the surface and painted on the Net-Trol. I let stand for a few minutes and then scrubbed with a stiff brush. I let stand for a few more minutes, then I misted the area with water and scrubbed some more. I then rinsed the residue away and the wood came out beautiful.

    This product is extraordinary! It worked perfectly to remove rust stains from stone on the face of a home from the 1800’s. The rust stains were gone in minutes.
