penofin smell?

basketcatJune 2, 2009

I oiled my Ipe deck yesterday with Penofin. It smells so bad this morning, almost like skunk....Any ideas, suggestions?

You can't even walk outside or open the windows. I know it's the deck, as that is where the smell is the strongest.

Skunk? I've used Penofin for a few years now.....it doesnt smell like skunk to me. Smells like oil to me.

Is there a skunk (dead or alive) under your deck??

Anyway.....Yeah....it will go away.

Actually, I dont mind the smell. It's kinda like having the new car smell for your deck....

Thanks, the smell has gotten a bit better.

~and John, I was not complaining. I wanted feedback to be certain it wasn't a bad can or that there wasn't another problem.
