DESCRIPTION
Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is a biodegradable, powdered concentrate that is mixed with water to brighten and restore the natural beauty of all species of exterior wood. This product excels at brightening, removing rust stains, and tannin stains caused by fallen leaves. Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is a safe, product that will not only brighten but neutralize the surface of the wood, creating an ideal surface that is ready to be stained.

This product is step 2 of the Restore A Deck system.

WHERE TO USE
Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener is intended for use on all types of weathered, exterior wood surfaces including decks, fences, siding, outdoor furniture, gazebos, and playsets.

Recommended for surface preparation prior to initial application of semi-transparent finishes and stains. The product can be used as a cleaner and brightener for redwood, or as a neutralizer to further brighten wood species, like pine, that have been cleaned with Restore-A-Deck Wood Cleaner or stripped with Restore-A-Deck Stain Stripper. For lasting protection of your exterior wood, after using Restore-A-Deck Wood Brightener, treat the surface with Restore-A-Deck Premium Wood Stain.

    Do you have to cover plants and lawn around the deck when you use the stripper and brightener to protect them from any caustic reaction?

    In the process of stripping all paint and paint film off pine siding with mix of Borax, washing soda and ammonia, I may have cleaned the wood accidentally; it looks like it, turned golden. I have a little more film to "clean off." Can I go straight to a brightener now before 100 series?

    As long as all of the old stain is removed then you should be okay.

    I recently power washed a small redwood deck. It's stripped of all dirt and stains. Can I just apply brightener without using cleaner first before staining?

    Yes that would be fine.

    Our redwood deck is 20 years old. It has been treated with Penofin. It is now gray and dirty. What are the steps we need to do so we can use TWP1500 on the wood? Will using the RetoreADeckCleaner prep the deck and the we apply the TWP1500? What should we purchase. Thanks.

    You would need to remove the Penofin with the Restore A Deck Stripper and Brighten after with the RAD Brightener. This will prep for the TWP.

    Yes it should remove the One Time stain. Always brighten after using the RAD Stripper. You apply with a pump sprayer but you do need to pressure wash off.

    I applied ONE TIME deck stain several years ago on approx. 1400 sq ft of deck.
    FYI: I DO NOT recommend this product.
    Will the stripper remove this product?
    I assume I should use the brightner after?
    I imagine I will need 2 of each for 1400 sq ft?
    I have a pressure washer but it sounds like applying this with a pump sprayer is better since it will be less diluted?
    Thanks in advance.

    Kathie, after sanding the wood you need to prep the deck with a cleaner and wood brightener. This will remove sand dust and "open" the wood pores so the stain is able to penetrate better. do not sand with a finer grit than the 60 paper.

    I have a deck with a stain that is peeling off. It did this within 3 months of the new finish. Had three dogs that helped peel up the finish! This stain is not very transparent. Almost looks like paint. Could I just sand the deck down and then apply the TWP100 stain. I don't see that using the "restore a deck stripper and brightener" are necessary. Would that work for me. Also it is only the surface deck that needs refinishing, slightly less than 200 sq'

    Kim T, yes you need to brightener to neutralize the caustic of the stripper. Your stain will look better and last longer!
