No, that would be kind of like trying to seal an open jar of honey - no sealer would be strong enough to overcome the softness underneath. Your best bet is to replace the bad section of the board. Cut out the bad section just up to the support joists, then nail a sister joist (or just a short 2x4) onto the sides of the joists so that the ends of you new section are supported. Or you could just replace the entire length of the board. As a temporary measure, put duct tape over the sticky stuff so that it doesn't get tracked all over the place. By the way, that stick resin is pine sap. The best solvent for cleaning it off your shoes and hands is turpentine.

Methods how to do white washing on pine wood?

First use a stain blocking primer such as Killz. If it is an item that is outside use a good exterior paint two coats. Inside items use interior paint two coats. Don't use exterior paint inside cause it can contain pesticides that can cause harm to you. Pine will seep sap for a few years so you may need to repaint sooner than usual.

To stain decks or other projects made of treated lumber, it has to be at least one year old, to allow the moisture from the treatment process to dry out. It the deck is already older than one year, then wash it with a deck cleaner, rinsing well. Give it a couple days to dry out entirely, then you are free to stain according to your stain manufactures instructions.

How to stain fiberglass entry door?

You cannot use regular stain on a Fiberglass door. Stain is made to soak into wood. It cannot soak into Fiberglass. It will peel right off in several months depending on the weather. A solid stain may would work for a while, but it will not hold up as well. Whereas stain is made to soak into wood, paint is made to sit on top of surfaces. There are some nice paints that look like stained wood if that is the effect you are looking for. But if you want the new finish to last on your door, use paint. Make sure you clean the door thoroughly with a degreaser, prep solvent or paint thinner

Should I coat my deck by hand or can I use on of these air paint things that some people use to paint houses?

You should coat your deck using a roller or a paitbrush I haven't seen anyone using an air brush. This could be because it can be hard to get into all the nooks and crannies in the wood using an air brush.

My pool deck was coated with Behr solid deck stain and now there are several exposed cement areas where the paint has chipped Can can I use this product to cover the whole surface area before repainting ?...

I'm not sure if your wording is incorrect or if you've revealed the problem. Usually the difference between paint and stain is paint is a topical product, stain penetrates the surface. If you've stained your concrete, it should be wearing off or fading, not chipping. If this is the case, the profile on your concrete isn't correct. That could mean the concrete was sealed before you stained it or there was something that wasn't properly cleaned before the coating was put on. The most common solution to concrete adhesion issues where I live/work is to etch the concrete prior to re-sealing it. On the contrary, if the stain is adhering everywhere except in one spot, it would indicate there was an issue only there (perhaps from a grill, pool chemicals,etc.). I'd clean the area well, perhaps pressure washing the entire area to make sure everything is properly adhering and re-coat it. Be sure not to stain or seal over loose 'paint'. It'll flake again if you do.

Brown stains in the drum of my whirlpool dryer

Apparently a common problem with 4-5 year old Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers. The paint is rubbed off the back panel by the felt seal attached to the rotating drum. The bare metal gets rusty from the damp clothes. The rust is rubbed off by the felt seal. The entire felt seal will turn brown. The stains are transfered to the clothes. The rust stains can generally be removed by additional cleaning.
I'm going to replace the felt seal on the drum, clean the rust off the back panel and see how long it lasts. Seal w/ adhesive is $30-40.
Some have suggested painting the back panel, but i don't think fresh paint is going to last long. The original paint was probably electrostatically applied and maybe baked on.
