Treating wood beforehand with WOCA Softwood Lye
protects it from yellowing caused by UV rays in sunlight. Lye treatment bleaches softwoods like larch, spruce, fir, stone pine, pine, etc.
Softwood Lye helps open the pores in the wood, which leads to greater and more consistent saturation when pigmented oil is applied later on.
This product is recommended for its organic properties that meet healthy living standards, so it can be used to treat worktops, Kitchen surfaces, and even children's toys.

After everything is dry, do an intermediate sanding using the beige pad in order to flatten out minor irregularities left by the treatment and smooth over still-open pores in the wood.
