wood bleach

In reply to wood bleach on hardwood floors--any alternatives? by Joe on February 1st, 1999 04:25 PM [Go to top of thread]

Joe, I don't know of anything other than a bleach of some kind. You can try Clorox but pet stains go deep into the wood. This is particularly true with oak as the cell structure promotes liquids moving through it. If you have baking soda and water around, you can control the bleaching action of oxylic acid pretty well. Remember that the color will change when it is finished so if you are trying to get the bleach wetted area to match the surrounding wood, it must be damp too so you can see the finished color. If someone else has a better answer, please let us all know.
