Super easy, worked great, and a fair price!
I decided to try a small triangular section of my twenty-two-year-old deck to see how this stuff worked. I probably had three or four coats of Behr stain that I needed to remove. I used the dosage it called for and soaked it with a garden sprayer as directed for 15 minutes. Since it was… a warm sunny day I used my big deck umbrella to keep it in the shade as much as possible, but I had to reapply a little to keep it wet. After 15 minutes, I used the power washer and it came out great! I will certainly be waiting until and more overcast day before I continue but I am certainly happy that it works!
The first picture is after the soak and power washing, the second picture is after it all dried. Read more “Super easy, worked great, and a fair price!”
Just what I wanted
I applied the honey brown to a new pressure treated pine deck that is enclosed. I waited about a month after the deck was built and used a cleaner from home depot. Initially I was going to use a deck pad to apply the stain but wasn’t getting really good results, so I just went… to a 5 inch brush and it was great. I purchased 2 bottles but probably could have gotten away with one with my 16×14 area, I don’t have rails. I look forward to see how this holds up; it went on super easy and would recommend it to anyone that has a new deck looking for their first stain. Read more “Just what I wanted”
The rave reviews are correct
I have used Olympic Deck Cleaner for decades and sworn by it, but now after 30 years Lowe’s has dumped Olympic in favor of Valspar, so I decided to try the canister of HD-80 that’s been sitting around… Wow. Until this use, I rolled my eyes at Woodrich’s claims that HD-80 strips old deck sealer.… Now I’ve watched it happen. The Olympic product never touched that old finish, but I think it did work well as a prep.
It is so heartening, in this time of corruption, to find an American product that’s not a pack of lies. The VALUE is also fantastic. The 10 lb tub makes solution at $2.80 per gallon. Nothing else effective comes close.
All that said, I must pass along this caveat: HD-80 is like pool chemicals. It is SUPER caustic and must be mixed with maximum respect and PPE: elbow length chem gloves, splash goggles, long pants, boots. The undiluted powder will eat your skin for lunch, and I shudder to think what it would do to eyes. The label writers do not stress this enough. Read more “The rave reviews are correct”
Great product! Works as advertised!
Product works great! Stripping 3 coats (over 30yrs) of stain from my log home. 20-30mins of dwell time for the hd80 seems to be the sweet spot for my application. Then hit it with the pressure washer. Commercial grade stuff! Citralic doesn’t take much work at all. Spray on, quick brush, then rinse off. Very… happy with the results. Read more “Great product!

Made a deck stripping project easy
I was dreading stripping my deck but it was looking nasty. I read good things about this product. It was more expensive than some of the others but worth every cent in my opinion. I sprayed on the stripper and then power washed it off. I wasn’t expecting the old tinted water sealer to come… up as easily as it did. A couple stubborn areas needed some brushing afterwards but they also came up. The second phase (cleaner) made my 20 year old pressure treated decking look like new. Great stuff!

RESTORE & PROTECT GRAY AND WEATHERED WOOD
If your wood is weathered and has turned silver or gray over time, it can easily be resored to a like new, fresh cut appearance with our restoration kits. This process is safe and equally effective for restoring outdoor wood furniture, decks, fences, wood sided homes and log cabins.
STRIP AN EXISTING STAIN OR FINISH
It is important to get the wood stripper that gets the job done, with the least amount of power necessary. A mild stripper can perform most tough jobs, while our heavy duty stripper can tackle any failed finish, gray weathered wood, dirt, grime, mold or mildew. The key is to choose the stripper that gets the job done while keeping the wood as fresh as possible. We offer a sample kit to test which stripping power is right for your wood restoration project.
