  • Do I have to apply the brightener immediately after cleaning with EFC-38? What is the maximum time I can wait between cleaner and brightener?

    You can apply the brightener right away after cleaning.  If there are puddles of water, try to broom those off before applying the brightener.  There is no maximum amount of time you can wait, as long as you apply the brightener at some point before you stain.


  • How soon do I have to apply the stain after using the cleaner and brightener? Can I wait a few days?

    Yes, you can usually wait up to about three weeks before the sun will start causing the wood to lost its natural color.

  • How long is Citralic viable once it is mixed?

    The Citralic can be stored for several days (or longer if needed) after it has been mixed.

  • How do I remove outdoor wood furniture stain before reapplying new?

    We recommend using either the EFC-38 cleaner and mild stripper to remove outdoor wood furniture stain. Use also the HD-80 heavy-duty wood stripper. Then you would follow with the Citralic wood brightener and neutralizer.

  • Should the wood be dry, damp or wet before applying EFC-38?

    It is okay if the wood is damp (with no puddles) or dry when applying EFC-38.  The cleaner could become diluted if the wood has a lot of puddles.  Wood that is in the direct sun can become hot to the touch.  It is okay to mist the wood with a little water to cool it off before applying the EFC-38.  This will help the cleaner stay wet and active longer.

  • Your products are great! Can I use them to clean my concrete garage floor?

    HD-80 and EFC-38 are both very effective cleaners for concrete and hard surfaces.

    Of course you want to follow all of the same safety precautions as when they are used for wood restoration.

    Citralic Brightener/Neutralizer will effectively remove rust and other mineral stains from concrete.

    For severe concrete stains, you can wet the area and then grind in some of the dry Citralic powder making a thin paste.  Allow that paste to dry on the surface and then rinse away.  Repeat as necessary.

  • Is there an msds for this?

    Yes. Please contact customer support at 866-536-7393 to obtain an MSDS. You can also contact a Project Support Specialist at 636-288-8512. They will help you with this or any other question you have about Woodrich-Brand products or the wood restoration and preservation process in general.

  • Is this a powder or crystal that needs mixed and if so how many gallons will this product make?

    Yes. This product needs mixing with water. This size will make 20 gallons at full strength.
