DEFY Wood Brightener is an oxalic acid deck brightener. Additionally removes dirt, grime, tannin, rust, and fungi stains from cedar and redwood surfaces. This liquid concentrate is also mixed with water (four parts water to one part concentrate) to brighten and restore the natural beauty of exterior wood.

It is an oxalic acid that will not harm wood fibers, grass, or most plants when used properly. This product is not recommended for surface preparation prior to initial application of clear and semi-transparent finishes and stains. It is used both as a neutralizer and brightener for all wood species that have been cleaned with DEFY Wood Cleaner or DEFY Stain Stripper. For best results, use DEFY water repellent wood stain finishes.
