Answer: 
I bought this before Home Depot carried it, around late 2012. I mixed up a gallon of it and it still works fine even in 2016. It has turned a rust color since, but it still has the same effect that it did when I first started using it. So even though it says it has a certain shelf life to it, if you're simply using it to patina wood, well, it's good for many years. I store it in an outside storage closet Read More

Answer: 
It's organic - natural minerals that bind with the resins in the wood which is why it's best for cedar, redwood, pine. When mixed with water it's inert and should last for some time.

Answer: 
I kept some solution in my tank sprayer for several weeks. I used a little the other day for some spots that I had missed. It seemed to work great. I think the color of the solution got a little darker over the past few weeks. Looks like it works the same, however.

Answer: 
It's said to be all organic and non-toxic, so yes, it should be just fine for that. You can find more information on the manufacturer's website.

Answer: 
I use this product on ALL raised beds, but not so much for the staining properties but for the preserving properties. The minerals react with the resins in pine/cedar which protects against rot. It doesn't stop rotting, but certainly slows it down. I've used this product for over ten years. I never use traditional stains anymore on fences, raised beds, railings, lattice, etc.

Answer: 
It makes no sense to use this 'eco' friendly preservative on PT wood that is already chemically toxic.
This should be used on 'natural' wood to preserve it for non-toxic protection. I am using it on framing for a raised garden bed.

Answer: 
Pressure treated wood is already "cured" so apply when you want. I suggest you also make sure to saturate the ends of wood planks as well as the four surfaces.

Hello, I would like to know if a waterproofing sealer can be applied over this product. I would like to use this product on a bathroom mirror that may come in contact with water and will come in contact with moisture. I see that the product is not waterproof and is not a sealer.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm telling everyone I know about it! So glad we found this product. Really easy to use - just mix powder with 1 gallon of water. It's non-toxic, no nasty fumes and cleans up with water. It's also about half the cost of a traditional stain! We used it to pre-treat our boards before building raised veggie garden beds. A helpful tip: You can bring your mixed product (buy an empty paint can to simplify things) to the paint department and have them tint it using a "quick dispense" tint, with any color you want. They don't even charge for it. We used the color "cedar" because we didn't want the grey/patina look. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EcoWood is Eco-GREAT The package directions were easy to follow and worked perfectly. EcoWood covered all my wood projects (4 4 x 9 foot garden beds). They look great in the garden! April 19, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wasn't what I expected I misunderstood how this product would work. I was trying to make pine look like old barnwood quickly. It ages wood over time and protects it. Wasn't what I needed. October 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Warning: Do not use on wood that you'll be walking or sitting on if you have it tinted. Warning: Do not use on wood that you'll be walking or sitting on if you have it tinted. We had ours tinted cedar tone and used it on a very large deck. Now, even after several weeks, whenever people walk on it, we have tracks of cedar tone tint showing up on the bottom of feet, shoes, and therefore, ends up leaving a trail leading into the house on the carpet. Just yesterday, my daughter had friends over. They were sitting on the deck, and the bottom of their shorts were stained in cedar tone. Very frustrating. Our little, white Westie dog can't even be out on the deck, because he turns cedar tone. We really have a mess on our hands. Praying this problem diminishes over time. As other reviews have indicated, the real test and results of this product cannot be determined at this point. Only time will tell. I do know that I'll never use it on wood where there is traffic again. August 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great! I used this on some fresh rough-cut cedar paneling that is on the exterior of my garden shed, and for three garden boxes (also cedar). I ended up using only about 2/3 the amount of the Eco-Wood Treatment that the instructions said it would cover (so it covers more than they say it will). I bought 3 boxes but only used 2. I applied one coat with a tank sprayer. I could see results within about 10 minutes. The color initially came in as a grey with a green tint. The green has faded over the past couple weeks to more of a grey/brown. It is perfect! I may end up doing one more application on the garden boxes because the wood is much smoother and it didn't absorb the treatment as well as the shed. Great product! May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and beautiful dark grey finish. Easy to apply, and in a few days in the sun, it has a great grey finish. Bought more to use in the future. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use! We love how easy this was to mix up and apply! I had been looking for wood treatments that would be safe to use on my veggie garden bed and everything else I'd found was five times as expensive. I love how the cedar looks now. I only purchased this a couple of months ago, so I can't say how well it works in the long-term, but we are very happy as of now! April 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eco Stain just needs some time to age Works just as described however it takes time outside to fully develop. We used it for trade show booth and looked fantastic after a week outside not a day before. Its been outside for a month now and looks like old wood left out in the desert even better than anticipated. February 17, 2015
