Dog drool on window sills

Posted by hopesprings (My Page) on

We have lots of windows that are low enough for our chocolate lab to stand and look out. We have lots of bunnies, squirrels, etc., that make him drool as he watches them. I'm finding his 'water spots' hard to remove. I sanded and varnished some of the more tired sills with UV spar varnish (we also get lots of sun), and they looked okay for a few days, but the dog drool is still making marks that are hard to rub out. Is dog drool enough to eat into the varnish?? Any thoughts or suggestions?

hmm...well, helmsman, if that is indeed the spar urethane you used, is as you said a very hardy coatin when it comes to uv protection, it is also flexible enough to expand and contract with the weather which makes it good for out door use( not on decks mind you). it is because of this flexibility however that is making it susceptible to fidos slobber, i would advise using a stronger more rigid urethane such as minwax's fast drying polyurethane which should hold off the drool better

Ah, hadn't thought of it that way. We get tons of sun, so UV was my first priority, as the sills were bleached out when we bought the house. Thanks!
