Emily Roache commented on Randy Bosse's blog post Sikkens or no
"Hi Randy! Take a look around the Stains and Sealants forums; maybe someone has already answered a similar question. If not, try starting a new post in the forums, you will probably get more replies in the forums than on a blog. Thanks! Emily"
