Question about applying BORACARE to furniture, what to do after

The right section of our game cabinet is infected with drywood termites. We had this removed (its now in the garage) and we are thinking about treating it with Boracare and then re-installing it. Was wondering what the recommendation would be so as to have the cabinet look good after application. For example, if the product leaves a sticky residue, what should be done before re-installing? (sorry if the question is very basic) And curious if the color of the wood can change after application?


If more than one application Boracare is applied it can leave a crystal white type residue. Please allow 72 hours for it to dry. If you need to you can paint or sand over the furniture after the Boracare has soaked in. It should not leave a sticky residue.
