Hi all,

I have a problem in that i do not always get light coloured AM . Is there a household product that i can use to bleach the AM and then put the stain to get to a desired color. Some times we only get the darker colour AM . This coulor differences creates a problem when i want to get a “consistent” colour over all my projects. I am using caustic acid to stain the AM. Would the caustic acid do the same job after bleaching?

We do not get these products off the shelf that is specifically for wood bleaching(maybe i did not search enough?). Can some one help in this regard
Thanks
Nollie
