The reaction, when completed, leaves no ash or residue on the wood surface which has the final appearance of having been cleaned and bleached is prepared by adding the borax and caustic soda to a suitable mixing tank; fifty-one gallons of water are slowlyadded with constant stirring until the materials are completely dissolved; the sodium tetrasilicate is dispersed in the solution, and the agitator is stopped to allow the liquid to cool and clear up.
Another object of this invention is to provide an economical, quick acting and quick-drying odorless bleach which, when sprayed, will penetrate the surface of the wood sumciently to provide a permanently and uniformly bleached surface, in one operation, which does not require cleaning or the application of alcohol as a neutralizer before applying the finishing materials.
Use a two-part bleach if you want to strip the natural coloring from the wood fibers and to partially lighten pigment-based wood stain (two-part bleach does not lighten dye-based stain): Mix equal measures of sodium hydroxide and hydrogen peroxide – components of a two-part bleach – in a plastic or glass container as directed by the product manufacturer.
US Government regulations (21 CFR Part 178) allow food processing equipment and food contact surfaces to be sanitized with solutions containing bleach, provided that the solution is allowed to drain adequately before contact with food, and that the solutions do not exceed 200 parts per million (ppm) available chlorine (for example, one tablespoon of typical household bleach containing 5.25% sodium hypochlorite, per gallon of water).
Use wood bleach when there is a need for a bleaching solution occasionally to bleach large surfaces of maple, birch, oak, walnut and other woods which are to be finished in as light a color as possible, for instance, oak, which is to be finished with one of the popular light gray, two-tone finishes with white filler, and walnut , which are to be finished with the very light brown French walnut color.
Chris Marshall: Aged wood definitely enhances the character of an old home, but urine-stained reminders” from the past just wouldn’t work for me. Hopefully, the sanding process will reveal that the urine stains are superficial and not deeply penetrating, but the deeper the damage, the more likely you’ll need to sand the entire floor to end up with a consistent appearance and a uniform top surface.
One treatment usually bleaches the wood completely, but if the wood isn’t light enough, treat it again. Hoppe, who teaches classes at Faux Masters using Faux Effects products, gives these woods a coat of Faux Effects FX Thinner to close the pores evenly.

Laytex: Yes Primary materials: New Zealand Blended Wool With Hand Washed, Hand Shaved, Hand Carved Pile height: 0.7 inches Style: Contemporary Primary color: Bleach Tan Secondary colors: Warm Sand, Beige Pattern: Geometric Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces. In general, the action of ultraviolet light on wood acts to move the natural color of the wood the ‘other direction’. I have used Wood Kote Lite-N-Up, and I’m very happy with it. I bought it from Super f Paint online store. This is not serious; it indicates that the bleach has dried out the fibres of the wood surface.
Use a seperate paint brush for Part A and Part B, as you want them to react on the wood, not on the brush. To the wood surface by either brush, spray, or dip in. the usual manner, and although the surface is generally wet sufilciently to obtain a penetra tion of about one-twentieth inch, it will dry at room temperature in about an hour. I will be using a plastic cover while its not in use so it wont be exposed to the elements all the time. It will suck all of the color out of the wood along with the stains, leaving it quite dead in appearance.
Since wood has only a small amount of extractives present, the total possible amount of color shift is usually pretty limited. Hoppe applies the bleach sparingly, with a sponge or a stain pad, wiping off any puddles or drips, which will stain the wood. Tried and true, Clorox Bleach remains the most trusted brand of bleach for the whitest of laundry whites. Anyway WWS is backlisted by two weeks for the stuff and it would be cheaper to just go buy new wood for the top.
I would first try it on a scrap piece of wood before trying it on the actual piece. Sand all wood surfaces in the direction of the grain with either a Circa 1850 Finishing Pad (coarse) or sand paper (180 grit). Apply your finish Though staining is optional, applying finish is crucial for protecting the surface of wood as well as enhancing its appearance. I realised that in order to get the paleness I was after, I would have to use paint which is exactly what I thought I could do without, having used the bleach.
Two-Part Bleaches: The two-part commercial wood bleaches are used to lighten or remove the natural color of wood. If you want a dark old piece to fit in with a roomful of blond furniture, this is the bleach to use. Keep in mind, however, that the dark appearance in vintage gunstocks is usually from soaked-in oil and Cosmoline, not from the color of the wood itself. I think I should experiment with the above 2 products and see how the wood reacts. Chlorine bleach will also remove old dye that you might encounter during a refinishing project.
The OSHA highest allowable peak concentration (5 minute exposure for five minutes in a 4-hour period) is 200 ppm, 31 twice as high as the reported highest peak level (from the headspace of a bottle of a sample of bleach plus detergent). Remember: After the bleaching process, you will only be able to sand lightly with 220 grit by hand to remove the remnants of grain fuzz lifted by the bleach and its neutralizer. To soften the hard paste wax, simply add 1-2 part shaved wax and 1 part turpentine (mineral spirits doesn’t work very well) to a jar. This is because the pigment sticks to lighter areas of wood and not to denser dark areas.
THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO REMEMBER: Apply one time only: 3-5 ml of 2.8% w:w oxalic acid in 50% sugar syrup per seam of bees as soon as the colony goes broodless. For example, the use of elemental chlorine in the bleaching of wood pulp produces organochlorines and persistent organic pollutants , including dioxins According to an industry group, the use of chlorine dioxide in these processes has reduced the dioxin generation to under detectable levels.
The early methods were not able to provide a definite pH’ control and therefore the surface of the wood was either too alkaline or too acid; and, for this reason, alcohol was often used as a neutralizer. The first chemical method is the use of ‘OXALIC ACID’ which is best used to lighten wood only slightly. Minor wood discolorations are a good candidate for this chemical but it is not really effective at removing major dark areas on hardwoods. But the natural color of most wood or wood that has been darkened by heat can be lightened back up,, clear up to the point of being turned black.

A couple of good rounds of bleach and neutralizer will dissolve the glue under thin veneer as well as eat away at the cellular structure of the veneer itself. Cherry will darken substantially in as little as 2 hours of direct exposure to sunlight.
I think that I will put oxalic acidon it and see what happens, just for the sake of saying I tried something and then I will grind my teeth and go buy a new board and redo the silly top. High temperature storage, maybe in an attic in the summer, will also darken cherry wood over a period of time. If you see dark zones around the nail or hinge, then the wood species does react with iron to create color. Soak a pad of fluffed-out, oil-free fine steel wool in 2 cups of clear vinegar at least overnight. If you’re bleaching out an old stain, wipe the bleach off with a damp cloth when the stain has lightened.
