Why Use Wood Bleach?


You can put color in wood with stain. You can take color out of wood with bleach. You can use bleach to lighten almost any wood to an off-white color. Then you can apply a finish to the wood as is, or you can stain the wood darker to match the color you want. Use bleach when you want to make the color of wood lighter than it is naturally. You can also use bleach to lighten two different-colored woods so you can stain them to a common color.

· Use wood bleach when there is a need for a bleaching solution occasionally to bleach large surfaces of maple, birch, oak, walnut and other woods which are to be finished in as light a color as possible, for instance, oak, which is to be finished with one of the popular light gray, two-tone finishes with white filler, and walnut , which are to be finished with the very light brown French walnut color.

· When there is a need to removing stains from woods to be finished or refinished, such as rust stains, water and weather stains.

· When the wood you have is too dark for a particular project. In this case, removing some of the color from the wood might make it more suitable, or would allow you to stain the wood to a lighter color.

· When you have several boards of the same wood for one project and they vary in color. In this case, you can bleach one or more of the boards to match the others. Or, you might bleach all the boards and stain them to a consistent color.

· When you want to stain one wood to look like another. Removing the natural color from a wood makes matching the color of another wood easier. If you bleach both woods, you can stain them both the same color.

· When old stained and varnished surfaces are stripped off, removing all the old finish possible the wood is sometimes found to be too dark to take the new stain of light color and make a nice job. Then bleaching is resorted to.

· Bleaching is the first step in matching old wood that has changed color from exposure to light.

· Use wood bleach when you have removed the finish from a piece of furniture or hardwood floor and found black stains or black rings from metal pots. Or, you have found black or deep brown pet urine stains in the wood, which no amount of sanding will take out. These are all iron stains caused by the chemical reaction of tannic acid in the wood mixing with the trace metals in urine and water.
