Step 2: Put your protective gloves on before using the pump up sprayer to spray the fence with the mixture.
Note: If you don’t see the wood lighten enough, strengthen the mixture by increasing the percentage of bleach to water until wood lightens immediately after application.

Step 3: Let the fence sit for about 20 minutes before rinsing off the fence with a hose. Let fence dry completely before applying Ready Seal.

Step 4: Once fence is completely dry, apply Ready Seal with either a paint brush, paint roller, or a pump up sprayer.

Note: Ready Seal is self leveling so you don’t have to worry about applying it perfectly even. The important thing is to get the stain on the entire fence. It will soak in and create a lasting protection.

Step 5: Enjoy your fence! Once the Ready Seal is applied to the fence you don’t have to worry about it getting rained on because water will bead off the fence within minutes of application.
