No, used cleaner last year. Got rid of the old decking, so this one was brand new so didn't use cleaner.
I pressure washed the Ronseal off from last year which didn't stay on, so stripped back and used Screwfix own decking oil £20 with a 2" brush which got in the tracks, 2 coats so see how that stays over winter. 2" cheap paint brushes was better than painting with the 4" decking brushes.

I did look at the ronseal but it had mixed reviews. Did you use the ronseal ultimate? Because that looks better. I usually use the Screwfix no nonsense which I was initially impressed with, but it doesn't last and on closer inspection contained hardly any wax. A good test it to leave some in a bowl in the sun and see what's left in the bottom when the white spirit has evaporated - in the case of 'no nonsense' there was nothing

I've checked now, it is the ultimate protection natural cedar. I've used this last year too but in the mean time I've got rid of the old decking. Prior to this I used Ronseal too, different colour but can't tell if it was the ultimate protection, I don't remember, the tin looks the same. I always used Ronseal and do the decking every other year. I am very pleased, but I do not know anything about other oils, so can't compare. One thing I've noticed when I checked if it is the ultimate, it says on the tin to use the cleaner/reviver before, as the new decking has a bit of water proof on it already. Well, too late for this, IMO it looks good. I've never tried anything else as I was always pleased with the result after using Ronseal.
I've been using this oil for over 5 years on two different decks.
Pressure wash in spring and oil next day - min temp. 15C.
I tried, Ronse and Screwfix oils none performed as well as this one which have lots of oil in it and that shows on especially on the second and third coat. The deck shines the next day.
Mind that after rain, if you don't have good drainage, the water stays on top of the decking.

Thanks for the deal.
Use the clear version of this on my hard wood decking or the past 6 years... highly recommended.. shame the clear one isn't on offer though.

One question, on Amazon what's the difference between 5L and 5 Litre, they're difference prices??

It's also £19.99 in Screwfix. I bought some today, along with an applicator kit that cost £9.99
I've bought some oil but my wife wants to stain the decking, do you or can you oil than stain or is it one or the other?
I prefer Schaeffers Deck Sealant.

I wouldn't do both. Oil is the best way to preserve and protect the wood, I do it after a long dry hot period (like at the moment) so the wood is bone dry and desperate for moisture, slap plenty on and you'll see satisfying little bubbles appear as the wood soaks up all the oil. The end result is deep oil penetration that repels water and prevents rot. If you then try and stain over the top it won't absorb and sit on the surface only to flake off after 6 months. If you did it the other way round the oil wouldn't absorb properly through the stain and it would be a mess.
One or other, but I prefer oil.
Edited by: "dave_gilmore81" 22nd Jul
excellent product..
I’ve used this and it was a disaster.
Had new decking fitted. Left it to dry out over a few months. Have it a good clean, let dry till next day and applied this.
Within 6 months it was flaking off and providing no waterproofing.
Pressure washed it off after the winter, sanded, washed and applied a second coat. Same results.
Have a full 5L tin of clear, with no incentive to use it.
Tried Ronseal coloured stuff, can’t remember the name and it’s lasted much better.
Could well be user error but though I had it right.

Sound advice. I've used oil for 4 years and my boards are as strong as the day they were laid. I'd use stain on anything that was vertical and cant collect water but oil on anything that's horizontal. I used the left over decking to make a coffee table for my decking and the oil has preserved that perfectly too

Pressure washed it off? oil soaks into the wood... if its remaining on the surface then it's been pre treated with something that's stopping the wood absorbing the oil.... or you didn't allow it to dry for long enough

A very luxurious oil. Cures to give a natural feel and finish. Two coats minimum on flat surfaces. Rain beads beautifully on the waxy surface. Can be topped up without stripping back as it doesn't peel like other water based and pigmented stains. Better than Screwfix and Ronseal decking oils with greater longevity imo.
Only this and Diall we have found any good. Gone back to this one this year and it has transformed the deck from a tatty, weathered driftwood appearance to a rich, warm almost plastic looking finish. The water beads off and it shines like varnish in the sunlight. 2 coats. Used a long handled soft brush. Took 8 manhours in total. Always jet wash first and leave to dry. Apply on a cloudy day if possible

It is pressure treated but thought that was normal for outdoor decking boards.
As for drying time it was always done during dry spells to cure as long as possible.
I'll throw in another option for those without prime, Barrettine decking oil is £19.99 at Toolstation. I found this to be as good as the Holzol oil I used previously, but got twice the coverage out of a 5l tin. Only used half a tin to do over 20 square metres of decking last year.

Would this be any good for indoor wooden flooring?

Yeah, i meant drying time after your jetwashed it... because the wood absorbs water also and the surface may appear bone dry but could be damp underneath.

If it's pressure treated, that may very well be the reason why the oil cannot soak into the wood, you shouldn't need to treat the wood for several years if it's been pressure treated.. That might be why you are better off with the wood stain instead
