BLO & Kerosene. Mix 1:1 and broom/roller over the concrete on a warm day -
needs heat to work. Kerosene will allow BLO to penetrate and then
evaporates and BLO will "congeal" back together. Needs to be re-applied
(same mixture) every other year, depending on usage...
The mixture is adjusted to a higher kerosene percentage for older concrete,
less porous concrete, etc...
