Doctor Ben's Weathering Solutions--In
my quest for the ultimate weathering process I remember finding a four-step,
four bottle product back in the 1980s that
stated it came from
driveway and I tried this for a while. I then I tried the 'Steel wool & vinegar
rust' process. This I really liked, but the thought of the rusting processing
continuing even after the application scared me. I tried flushing with water,
but this washed the finer particles away, and I still was not sure that the
rusting process had been stopped. I even tried sealing the finish with a dull
coat—too labor intensive.
And then one day I
literally fell over an idea as I was helping my brother install some custom
cabinets on a commercial job site. The long story short is that although my
formula has changed over the years, AND, a lot of folks have tried real hard to
copy my Doctor Ben's products, but they still haven't come close. I do say that
this product might not be for everyone; but the fact that we have sold tens-of-thousands
of jars of Weathering Solutions leads me to think that folks like using our
Doctor Ben's products--a lot!
