    Works well removing most of the Behr Acrylic. The major concern was that the HD-80 ran out on my 400 sq ft deck. Might have mixed too strong of the chemical per gallon. Container was not that full.

    Both containers had contaminates which led to clogged sprayer tip and clogged sprayer intake tube. Had two sprayers handy so for the project it was not a serious issue.

    Stripper did a great job stripping old log stain. (I wasn’t careful enough in one area & also stripped a little of the pre-painted soffit.

    Brightener actually did a nice job of brightening logs.

    My new house has a small porch and deck that had been neglected for some years, and the deck was a very sad looking grey color, except where it was black with dirt. I used EFC-38 in the belief that most of what remained on the wood was transparent stain. It cleaned off lots of dirt, and lots of stain, leaving behind some handsome bare wood, but there was much more solid stain than I expected still on the boards. Restripped with HD-80, and this got the rest. It did need scrubbing (didn’t use pressure washer) – that was the only hard part. Stiff broom did most of it, had to use a toothbrush under doorstep – next time, pressure washer. I did 400+ square feet and one kit was more than enough. Wood looked really good after it was stripped/brightened, even the greyest boards. Applied stain last Saturday and my porch and deck now look great.

    I’ve been wanting to strip my Ipe deck for sometime. I have had this deck for 18 years and have never stripped it. I’ve only done the stairs so far but the deck is going to look beautiful when I apply the wiping stain. Pretty easy considering how many coats of stain on it. Sprayed it on and when ready brushed it and hit it with pressure washer. Very happy with this product.

    Used this to remove peeling deck stain that was applied 1 year ago. Simple, does the job, and very cost effective. Deck looks like new. Couldn’t be happier with the performance of this product.

  10. Karen Kopnicky

    product works very well but it doesn’t go as far as they said it would. I thought I ordered enough for my whole deck but since you have to keep it wet I kept reapplying. So I ran out and will have to order more stripper. I think the brightener should be okay since I shouldn’t have to keep that wet for 15 minutes. I haven’t tried the brightener yet since I am still stripping.

    Used this on 10 year-old, never been stained, black with mold wood. Painted the HD-80 on and left it on for about a half hour. Rinsed and brushed it, then painted on the brightener. It was getting brighter as I was painting it on. Let that sit for about 15 minutes or so, and WOW, the wood looked brand new! I highly recommend this product.

  12. James Heckel

    I couldn’t be happier with the results I achieved. It stripped the old finish off my log home with relative ease, but it did take more than I figured it would to do the job. The cost was reasonable and the delivery time was fast. Thanks for a great product.

    I recently purchased a house with a 14 year old 450 SF deck. It was stained with Olympic stain and I dreaded the thought of trying to get it off. I did some research and decided to try HD 80. I had to use a little more of the product to keep it wet for the 15 minute work time. At first I was concerned since the wood didn’t really look cleaner, it actually looked darker. I then used the Brightener. I could actually watch the transformation taking place. I am AMAZED how well this stuff works. The wood looks new and I certainly didn’t expect it come out this nice.

  14. David

    I am not at all pleased with the results. The directions were followed but the stain remover and brightener did not provide the advertised results. I will have to end up renting a sander to complete the job properly.

    We have a Cumaru hardwood deck that was stained several years ago with heavy pigmented stain. We have tried several products to remove it with little success. We used HD-80 followed by neutralizer/brightener on the deck this weekend and completely removed the stain. I would caution to mix the product in a well ventilated area. It should be mixed in a well ventilated area and use eye and skin protection.

  16. Gary Jefferson

    We added on to our 20+ year old existing deck that had a worn and peeling solid latex stain on it (2 layers) so we needed to strip it before staining the whole thing. We applied the HD80 following the instructions and used a power washer to remove it. Only did one application of the HD80 and it removed about 95% of the latex stain. Followed with the brightener and existing deck looked like new. We were very pleased with the results.

    We have A HUGE deck. The footprint of the deck is bigger than our house footprint. Last year I started restaining it. I tried everything to remove the old solid stain. Hd 80 and brightener did it. I wasted a lot of time and money on the other junk. Won’t use anything but this from now on. Wish I could give it 10 stars….

  • Is this pre mixed in liquid form, or dry powder? Can I use a pump sprayer to spray it on or will it gob up and splatter?

    It is a dry powder. Mix it with water in a five gallon pail, then transfer it to your pump sprayer.

  • Can I use this on a painted deck?

    This stripper is most effective at removing wood stains and sealers. This stripper will not remove latex paint. It will remove some oil based paint. There is a sample test kit available. If you are unsure what is on your deck, it is a good idea to test the stripper for effectiveness, before ordering enough to complete the entire job.

  • How many gallons does the stripper mix make, and how many gallons does the brightener mix make?

    For “normal” stripping jobs you can make 5 gallons of stripper. The strength can be adjusted by adding more or less water. The brightener also makes 5 gallons.

  • Is HD-80 harmful to humans or pets?

    Yes! Wear protective gear when using this product. Read all MSDS and first aid material completely before beginning. Knowing what to do if something goes wrong while using HD-80 will help minimize the risk of serious injury. Keep animals away from areas (confined in home is best) where HD-80 is being used. Keep children and bystanders away while using HD-80.

  • Will HD-80 harm plants or grass?

    HD-80 will produce chemical burns on plants and grass and will eventually kill them if precautions are not taken. Spray all vegetation with water that is in the vicinity and cover sensitive plants in close proximity with plastic to avoid exposure.
