Rubio Monocoat Raw Wood Cleaner is used as a cleaner for raw wood surfaces before the application of Monocoat Oil Plus. It also removes the natural oils from the surface of exotic wood species preventing a blotchy finish. This product can also be used to clean the materials that were used during the application. Raw Wood Cleaner does not open the wood grain. There is no need to saturate the wood, tack the floor overall and use more product only on soiled areas.
Why use a small amount of Monocoat Raw Wood Cleaner? - The revolutionary technology of Monocoat Oil Plus uses molecular reactions to ensure that the oil bonds with the wood fibers. If there is dust on the surface, the oil can bond with the dust. As a result, when spreading the oil a microscopic paste can form on the surface. The oil will have bonded with the dust instead of with the wood fibers. - The cloth should only be slightly damped with Rubio Monocoat Raw Wood Cleaner. In that way the dust will be collected electro statically.

15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the degree of product that has been used to wet the surface.
