High Desert Wood Care
Fast shipping on a great product at an unbeatable price. We refinish around 65 decks a year and around 8-12 log homes, Woodrich products work!
I ordered the EFC38 & Citralic – Complete Wood Cleaning & Restoration Kit, because I wanted something that wasn’t toxic to use near my vegetable garden and fruit trees,. I didn’t have a pressure washer, instead I used a deck brush, the “jet” option on my garden hose head, and some elbow grease. The cleaner… and brightener really made the deck look like new and I was really impressed. There was some furring of the wood, likely due to my scrubbing, so I sanded the deck and railings after the deck dried. I would definitely purchase this product again. Great product at a great price.

These products do exactly what they claim. I used the hardwood stripper (EFC-38) and neutralizer (Citralic) then applied the stain (Hardwood Wiping Stain). So easy to work with and looks beautiful!
Almost back to new!
We purchased the Complete Wood Cleaning and Restoration Kit for the deck at our mountain house. After 12 years of little to no attention it was looking quite sad. We followed the directions on the kit and our deck looks so much better. And it wasn’t a back breaking experience at all. We choose not… to use the power sprayer for fear the wood would splinter, but instead used a stiff bristled brush. A little more work, but the deck looks and feels great. I will certainly not wait another 12 years before doing this again because it makes such a difference and I am sure will help preserve the deck as well. My only suggestion might be not to take on this job in the heat of summer….took a little more effort to scrub quickly before solution dried. Read more “Almost back to new!”
WILL USE AGAIN-GREAT PRODUCT AND SERVICE
I built my deck over 35 years ago using arsenic treated lumber and have used a variety of cleaners and sealers. This product is by far the best I have used. I ordered it one evening and it arrived the next day. The deck was very dirty so it took awhile, but I followed instructions… by keeping the applied cleaner wet before power
washing. After cleaning and applying the brightener, the wood looked and felt like it was new. I then
applied a natural look sealer. The finished product looks great , and the sealer is doing its job. Because of the type of sealer I use, I know I will be doing this process again, but by using this product again, it will be much easier. I highly recommend it.

BEST CLEANING MY 35 YEAR OLD DECK HAS HAD
This product cleaned my deck so that it looked and felt like new. I have used various products for cleaning along with different methods such as brush scrubbing and power washer, but none came close to this process for thoroughness. I took great pains to keep the surface wet for soaking due to the deck… being very dirty. This seemed to make a big difference in loosening dirt and old sealer when using a power washer. I anticipate cleaning being much easier the next time when I use this product. Read more “BEST CLEANING MY 35 YEAR OLD DECK HAS HAD”
Still had to power wash. Brushing did not take the debris off. Very heavy this spring from fallout after the Fires so I won’t give it a five
Easy to mix, easy to apply, easy to store
We cleaned a huge 3 bay barn, pump house and large two story home with this stuff… very easy to work with and did a great job.
We live in an area where myrtlewood sap and the winter elements take its toll on wood siding..this did a great job of cleaning the wood and… making it look new again. Highly recommend this product to anyone. Read more “Easy to mix, easy to apply, easy to store”
Worked good on older deck
I used both products to clean and brighten an older deck. The stripper did a very good job of cleaning dirt and mildew. The brightener was used to neutralize the stripper but could not tell much difference in color of wood (treated pine) after treatment. Overall a good product.
I’ve used it before on! Ipe deck. Terrific product.. I use a long handle brush to apply it and a string mop to apply the neutrializer.
Paired together, these products completely cleaned a redwood deck that had not been cleaned in four years. Took about six hours with brush and garden hose. Great product.
Customer service & product EXCEED expectation
Delivered much faster than expected. Can’t wait to use it. I bought the sample kit and was thoroughly impressed. Not too mention the thorough information given to me was well beyond my expectations. You don’t find customer service like this too often these days.
starsCant freakin believe how effective these are as wood cleaners …
Cant freakin believe how effective these are as wood cleaners. Will never use chlorine bleach mixes again on wood when I have this I can use. Be careful when using in higher strength mixes, it can fuzz wood, so be prepared to knock the fuzz off with 120 grit or higher paper.
Works great. Deck was black with mold and stains…
Works great. Deck was black with mold and stains and had not been cleaned in many years. Sprayed the cleaner on waited 15 minutes then pressure washed off. Deck looks new. Will definitely buy again.
This wood cleaner does a great job!
I have cleaned, sanded and restrained our decks at least 6 times over the past 15 years. This is the best cleaner I have ever used on my deck.
Product works well, Be vigilant on wood knots, Cover your plants
Products did a great job of loosening up grime and UV-worn sediments. Expect to “agitate” the material with a good, stiff deck brush with frequent cleaning of the brush. This is not a spray-on, hose-off product — particularly the cleaner. That said, my decks looked great when finished and were well-prepared to receive the stain.… Take particular care around knot holes. This is the hardest part of the wood and tends to retain more grime. I found that, when the cleaning/brightening was finished and the deck thoroughly dried, the areas around the knots tended to be white/gray with grime residue. I went over these spots (and there were a lot of them) at least one more time to clean them up. All in all, an excellent product. I bought some sheet plastic to cover the shrubs beneath my deck (sumac and incrediball hydrangeas). Even though the cleaner is “environmentally friendly”, I took care to cover them to prevent all of the deck crud from coating them. Plus, the brightener isn’t billed as eco-friendly so that was a second reason. Some of the glop landed in my grass but after a couple of rains and mowing it appeared no worse for the insult.

Easy to mix
Everything it says it does, Easy to mix. Easy to apply. Did the trick.
A cleaner, not a stripper
Works for cleaning but don’t count on it to remove any previous finish.
