What is the difference between Boiled and Raw Linseed Oil?
Boiled Linseed Oil contains metallic driers that accelerate its drying. Boiled Linseed Oil, if applied according to label directions, dries in approximately 24 hours, Raw Linseed Oil dries in 3-4 days. Neither product should be applied to food treatment surfaces, such as cutting boards.
Can boiled linseed oil be used to treat a pressure-treated wood deck?
Yes, boiled linseed oil can be used to add "life" to pressure-treated wood. However, it is not a long term outdoor wood treatment. A better choice for water repellency is Sunnyside Clear Wood Protectant or Water Proofer.
Will linseed oil preserve my outdoor wood furniture?
Linseed Oil (Boiled or Raw) is not a wood preservative, but it will help maintain wood's natural appearance and give some protection from water damage. Outdoor applications should usually be repeated on a yearly basis.
What can I use to reduce the stickiness of Linseed Oil if I accidentally over apply it?
