Vertical cedar siding

We have tight knot cedar siding we have been using Sun Frog cleaning and Sealers for years. This year we also used Born Again, Sun Frogs wood restorer. We let the wood dry for days, then applied the sealer. Now it has all these white crystalline spots, splotches everywhere. Some sort of chemical reaction. Yes it has been rinsed off twice. How can we fix this?

Check to see if the restorer was supposed to be compatible with cedar. Either way, your best answer should come quickly from SunFrog. If they seem lost, I'd avoid using them ever again. Last resort would be to check with a good paint rep from a real paint store- NOT a 'big box' store where they know less than nothing beyond colors and current styles.

Oh come on Phil, they usually know where the bathrooms are. ;)

Maybe their private ones, but some of them don't know where the dirty ones they have set aside for their valuable customers are located :rolleyes: I know because I've asked- at my age you've gotta go more often :(
