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.

Removing stain off a redwood deck
Don’t waste money
Not happy with the product. Did not strip the paint on the deck. Little help in cleaning as well. Used a 3100 PSI pressure wash to clean up deck. Pressure wash did the magic, not the product. To get effecting, you can only use this product for 1 gallon of water, not to gallons as… advertised. Would not buy again and would not recommend. Read more “Don’t waste money”
You can see the wood brighten before your eyes. Also great for removing rust stains from concrete.
I ultimately purchased some deck stripper and this worked beautifully with my power-washer
This product just didn’t do the trick even after I scrubbed it in with a brush. I ultimately purchased some deck stripper and this worked beautifully with my power-washer. I’ve finally got bare wood again. After it drys out a few days I’m applying some OIL-BASED sealer. I think it’s going to look great!
works good on siding also
I have a Ipe deck, this stuff cleaned off old sealers very quickly,,,works good on siding also…very impressed!
However the deck is yellow pine and now looks like it was just built new
This product cleaned a deck that had not been cleaned in over 10 years. It did take a lot of effort. The dirt and mold had to be soaked and in some areas scraped off and then soaked and scrubbed again. However the deck is yellow pine and now looks like it was just built… new. Even areas where the grill had dripped grease on the wood it bleached out to where the spots are is barely seen. I would recommend this product for the excellent results but depending on what you are starting with it may take some effort. Still a lot less than replacing the deck.

This stuff really works good. My deck was spotty from the old worn out stain and it had a lot of mildew under the rails and on the edges. This stuff and my pressure washer did a fantastic job. Note that it helps to wet the deck and let it soak for a bit before… applying the product. Let it sit for 15 minutes and pressure wash everything off. Old stain and mildew is gone and it’s back down to the bare wood again. This will make staining a breeze and it will turn out even for once. This product goes a long way. 5 gallons per 2# canister. I bought way too much. Read more “Really Works!!”
This stuff is freakin awesome!!
This stuff is freakin awesome!!!! I am disabled and haven’t cleaned my wood decks in 12 yrs. i mixed this in a gallon of hot water and applied it with a stiff brush. No hard scrubbing ,just more or less slopping it on . Wait 3-5 mins and just hose it off . Wood looks… so freakin good . I applied some transparent stain and viola , new deck.
I strongly recommend this product Read more “This stuff is freakin awesome!!”
