I will need to bleach alot of wood in the near future and was wonder would Clorox bleach for clothes do the same thing as 2 part wood bleach? If anyone has done this, what are the dos and don’t and pros and cons? If not does anyone knoe where I can buy wood bleach for a reasoonable price?? Thanks in advance.

No Clorox will not work. It is a relatively weak solution of sodium hypocholorite. Two part wood bleach has other ingredients. I understand the price has really gone up you would probably do the best with an Internet search for price comparisons.

Mostly Holly. I am hooked on using it for some accent woods for projects. I want the wood to saty white and not go grey on me and this is what I have been told will wrk. I have done some already and it sure does give a nice white color. I have started with nice white but it seems to dinge abit and hopefully this will help. i will be posting a few projects with the use of both holly and blackwoods. Have some great clock ideas I want to do. Thanks
