Advantages It is very easy to use and not badly priced
Disadvantages Nothing at all
I have some lovely exterior garden furniture oil from Cuprinol. I paid £13.50 for a one-litre tin. I have used this on my garden bench. I have an old garden bench in my back garden and I have it under the tree next to my Buddha. The sun gets here it’s a bit of a trap and I like to sit out with the cats. The trouble is the cats like to scratch it and sharpen their claws on the wood and I can’t stop them because that’s what cats tend to do.I asked the man in the shop what he thought was best to make it look nice again and he suggested Cuprinol Garden furniture oil so I bought a tin. He said it would protect the bench for longer than if I just used ordinary teak oil so I took his advice.
It is very easy to do. I have some old nighties in the shed which I have shredded and I used these to paint over the bench. I did this when the weather was nice recently but I had to put the cats inside first in case they got covered in it.
After I had put on the first light coat with the rags I did that again. I came inside to let it sink in and kept the cats with me. I went out later and put on the third coat with one of my brushes.I think it made the bench come up looking lovely and I really am fond of the shade. I wish I had taken a picture of the bench before I had painted it so you could see the difference it made. It looks far better and nearly new.
I like this solution because it is also meant to repel the water and I get a lot of rain where I live and I also think it brought out the wood grains lovely as well.I am very pleased with my efforts and my neighbour has also admired it and said what a good job I have done.
This is lovely oil and I recommend it to you.
