Q:Wanted to know after applying the copper green to wood. Can anything be done to lessen the smell.
by|Sep 29, 2022

Answer This Question

A:  I applied 3 coats of the preservative to bare wood using a brush so it was well soaked in the early summer. I found perhaps 95% of the smell went away in about 2 weeks. Sunlight and dry weather are probably your best friends with the smell. It took several months to go away completely.

    A:  Nope! It took long time before it dissipated some of my work clothes still smell of it after several washes the only thing that helps, is rinsing brushes in hot water but you wouldn’t want to do it to the treated wood 

    by|Oct 5, 2022

      A:  Apply it in a well ventilated area. The odor ts intrinsic to the product, but dissapates quickly. If the odor is troublesome wear a good quality facemask.

      by|Oct 4, 2022

        A:  Time. It just takes time for the solvent to evaporate (dry out) and that will lessen the smell considerably. After a few weeks, the odor should dissipate considerably.

        by|Oct 7, 2022

          A:  The smell dissipates on its own after a short amount of time.

          by|Oct 5, 2022

            A:  Any stain will have an odor which will dissipate in time. This stain should be applied outside. The green color will turn brown as it cures.

            by|Oct 3, 2022

              A:  NO. I have used it many times because it is very effective. I do not find the smell too obnoxious but it will last several months.

                Q:Is there any way to seal in this product so that you can bring the wood inside? Cabinet treated with it that we want to bring in to the kitchen. Would priming with Killz and painting be enough?

                A:  I do not know, but I would not see any wood that would not be exposed to outside elements.

                  A:  This product is a solvent based wood preservative, which is very toxic according to the label. According to the label, this product is a fungicide and will also kill termites. If the item were treated a couple of years ago, the solvent is probably mostly evaporated, and you might be able to paint it and bring it into your house. Before you decide, however, consider whether you would bring a lead-painted cabinet into your house. Eventually, some paint might chip or be scratched and present a hazard to children and pets. I would not consider placing the cabinet in or near any food preparation area, regardless of the sealer you might apply. Sorry for delivering bad news.

                    Q:I sure I read on the store container that this can also be used on canvas. I'm trying to protect our permanent standing cotton canvas tipi, here in Colorado where it snows in the winter. Would this be the best affordable product to apply...?

                    A:  I have only used this on wood.

                    by|Feb 7, 2022

                      A:  I’m sure you could but it will most likely end up being green. 

                      by|Feb 6, 2022

                        A:  I personally would not put it on canvas, not sure what the manufacture says, has a green color and a strong Odor, and maybe toxic, read the label and make your own decision, I only  used it for treating wood, and it works great. In

                        by|Feb 6, 2022

                          A:  Your tipi will be green and have an unpleasant odor if you use this product.  I would look for a product specifically made for your intended use, such as a canvas tent water repellant.

                          by|Feb 5, 2022

                            A:  I wouldn't - its designed for wood rot protection and turns the wood green stinks to high heaven for a long time but works fine. Check out Canvas waterproofing from Star Brite sold by the gallon as a better alternative (its designed for marine applications)

                              A:  No experience with bamboo. But generally, any wood must be dry, otherwise the stuff does not penetrate between the fibers. Meaning no protection.

                                Used with a hand sprayer to treat deck and shed floors. Went on well. Bare wood or already in stages of decay absorb immediately. Some painted areas stayed "wet" for 3-4 days. Only con is the smell, but since everything is outside well ventilated and I was wearing a mask (thanks covid-19) it didn't matter. The shed still has a mild odor, not overpowering, but maybe this is offensive to pests, spiders, squirrels, mice, and snakes as I have not seen a single one for over a month now. Possibly a coincidence?

                                It worked well on a wooden fence that I was repairing. The wood preservative was used to protect the ends of the wood that I needed to trim/cut for the project. I've used this before on other sections of the fence. The preservative should keep the fence from needing future repairs for many, many years. Thanks!

                                This stuff does what it is supposed to do. I am rebuilding my deck. I have 2x6's sitting out in the rain. Some have been treated with the waterproofing and some have not. The ones that have received the green treatment water beads right up, the ones untreated water soaks right in. This stuff works!

                                This is an excellent oil based product for helping to preserve wood. Many complain about the smell, yes it does smell but after a couple of weeks that will dissipate. Besides its only for outdoor use so it really doesn’t impact me unless of course you are outside but I will deal with the smell for a short time for a quality product any day!

                                Copper Green
                                I have used Copper-Green for many years and it has become an essential product for me. I use it where ever wood comes into contact with the ground and in applications where wood cannot be coated with paint, etc. It does a wonderful job of preserving wood and it has saved me alot of work and money. I highly recommend it.
