with a soft brush works quite well but the the trick is doing it every day as in every single
day! For anything else the trick is to use a system that can be repeated easily. The great looking finishes take weeks to remove and begin again. They all need to start over some time.
I'm pretty much convinced that the time required in the long term is the same. Nothing beats the destructive power of UV light. The deck
hand is still cursed for the time being.
