I will be belt sanding my deck to get a 2 year old peeling film (Benjamin Moore Semi) stain off...I have been told with sanding I don't need to use the kit. I am thinking the brightener might still be good but don't want to waste effort/time. Thouhgts?
After sanding we suggest using both the Cleaner and the Brightener for the final prep. This will help the new stain to soak in better into the wood grain.
