Perma-Chink Log Wash

Perma-Chink Log Wash is a low pH wood cleaner for maintenance cleaning and preparing log and wood surfaces for a new coat of stain or a topcoat.  Cleaning your log home once or twice a year with Log Wash will keep your home looking beautiful, and help protect your finish.  For both exterior and interior use.


Perma-Chink Log Wash is a liquid concentrate for cleaning log and wood surfaces.  Log Wash can be used as a maintenance cleaner or to prepare log or wood surfaces for a new coat of stain or topcoat.  

For preparing the surface of bare wood for a new coat of stain, Log Wash removes dirt, grime, pollen, and surface stains without harming the wood or the finish.  As opposed to bleach solutions, Log Wash does not upset the natural pH balance of the wood, thus preventing wood fiber damage and iron tannate stains.

The exterior of a log home is a settling ground for dust, pollen and other airborne contaminants that dull the surface and encourage mold growth.  A light cleaning once or twice a year will keep a home looking beautiful, and helps prolong the life of the exterior wood finish.

Log Wash is a liquid concentrate that is easy to mix with water and use.  Perma-Chink recommends mixing at the following rates:

  • For maintenance cleaner use:  One cup of concentrate per gallon of water.
  • For stain preparation cleaner use:  Two cups of concentrate per gallon of water.


Perma-Chink Log Wash features include:

  • Removes dirt, dust and pollen from log surfaces
  • Gently cleans bare and finished wood
  • Safe for log chinking and sealants
  • Environmentally friendly
