Previously Varnished Surfaces
Wash surface with suitable cleaning agent. Do not use detergents unless they are removed completely, as otherwise residues can spoil the drying properties and give adhesion problems. Proceed as for new wood. In some cases the antimould treatment and the first thinned coats can be ommited.
