Stained Deck and No Supper Either

Recommended Posts

So the title is the basics of the outcome, but hopefully the back story will help someone avoid my sad situation.

Last week I had to make a hurried trip to Panama City Beach to meet with my builder on some punch list issues.  In the rush to get my Redfisher parked back behind the locked fence I didnt put the cover on.  I got home last evening and pulled it out this morning for a quick cleanup and hell's bells, there are brown stains all over the deck where the immature pecans (pronounced pi-cahn) fell from the trees I parked under.  Dumb move #1. 

I went inside and explained to my wife how badly I had screwed up and complained about how much work I now faced.  At that point the lovely and talented Becky said accusingly, "I've told you a hundred times not to park under that pecan tree ( pronounced peecan).  Now, I had no choice other than to explain to her that there was no such thing as a Pecan tree.  I pointed out that a "pee can" was something my great grandmother kept under her bed.  Dumb move #2

So boys, dont park under a pecan tree without a cover and dont correct your wife's pronunciation of various flora (or fauna for that matter).  The good thing is I make a pretty good PB&J samwich!

Hey - a little tip for you, based on where I see this headed - when you are invited to sleep "elsewhere," do NOT sleep under that nut tree.

The general rule I use:

Organic Stains: Dawn with outdoor bleach - use some soft scrub....let it sit for 10 min to work out the organic stains.  Wash well, then apply some woody wax.

Metal stains: Bar Keeper Friend made into a paste - rinse well.
