Sure the Deck is protected now, BUT

Posted by graciecraft (My Page) on

My sweet husband? also sprayed weather seal on the house, and on other stuff! I tried soap, vinegar, oxyclean, simple green, the list goes on. the only thing I have found to actually work is acetone! Another word for that is fingernail polish, used to get rid of paint! There goes the house paint at the same time I take off the weather seal. Anybody have any ideas? I would have to go to the paint store and match up the color and repaint, a total mess! Any ideas would be appreciated!

Be nice to him - he's your only husband, correct? stuff happens sometimes. I think the answer is what you said - try to get some matching paint mixed and repaint.

You could be a marriage counselor. What an excellent way to look at this situation. I wish all posters had your sense of "the scheme of things." Thanks for being a voice of reason. Gracie you weren't at all unreasonable, but Geoff did come up with the best "solution." Take care, Mary

You might also contact the manufacturer of the sealant for recommendations. Next time you apply sealer cover and tape off areas that may be exposed to the product.
