4. Frogsuit Wood Protector
For Wood Treatment – ideal for any wooden items that live outdoors.
Frogsuit Wood Protector will provide some protection to wooden items that are subjected to weathering. The available oils penetrate the surface of the wood, reducing surface peeling or flaking, making ongoing maintenance of your wood and wooden furniture a lot easier than sanding down and re-painting. When applied to any outdoor wood-surface it will leave a water-repellent layer. Frogsuit Wood Protector is anti-fungal and contains UV filters to help prevent weathering and fading.
It’s been voted Garden Care Product of the Year 2018!
So, what we have here is something that’s:
- Contains UV filters
- Contains natural oil to help nourish and protect woodYou need to use it regularly on any wooden items that stay outside.
Simply wash the surface with soapy water two-three times per year to remove grime, falling pollution and spores. Once dry, spray or wipe Frogsuit on the upper surfaces of the wood and wipe off any excess.
Price range: £17 – 20
