    I already had my new pine deck powerwashed not thinking I needed to do anything else before staining it. Now that I learned about the cleaner and brightener, what is the order of the processes? How many days in between. Does it need to dry completely after powerwashing before anything else?

    Chris, first apply the wood cleaner, let it set for 15-20 minutes, then power wash it off. Next apply the Wood Brightener, let it set 5-10 minutes, then rinse it off with a garden hose. Let the deck dry out for 12-24 hours, then it’s ready to stain. There’s not a time limit between cleaning and brightening. It can be immediately, or several days in between.
