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.
Yes, you can usually wait up to about three weeks before the sun will start causing the wood to lost its natural color.
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.
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.
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.
It is fine to apply the brightener while the wood is still damp.
