Restore-A-Deck Cleaner and Brightener system is a powerful “eco-friendly” two part restoration system. 100% Biodegradable Concentrated powder formula. Prep wood surfaces for re-coating with a wood or deck stain and restores weathered gray wood to natural color.
Note: We tested Gemini’s Restore-A-Deck Kit on a heavily gray and dirty fence that was neglected for 8 years.
Gemini Restore-A-Deck Kit Scores (1-10)
Removal of Graying, Dirt, Grime: 9
- Gemini’s Restore-A-Deck Kit worked very efficiently to remove the graying from the fence. Even though the fence was severely neglected, the cleaner and brightener restored the wood to 90% of it’s original look.
Cost Per Square Foot: 10
- Excellent! Gemini’s Restore-A-Deck Kit is a powdered concentrate that is hard to beat when it comes to cost. The kit can clean and brighten up to 1000 sq. feet. You would need 3-5 times as much if purchasing a liquid packaged cleaner or brightener.
Removal of Old Stain: N/A
- Gemini’s Restore-A-Deck Kit cleans and brightens wood. Not designed to remove stains or finishes.
Ease of Application: 8
- We emptied the entire Step 1 Wood Cleaner into a 5 gallon pail of water. We stirred to dissolve and applied the cleaner with a garden pump sprayer. The Gemini’s Restore-A-Deck Step 1 Wood Cleaner needs about 5-10 minutes to activate. We stiff scrub brushed the surface, rinsed and then applied the Step 2 Brightener. No need to scrub the brightener, just rinse after a few minutes.
Final Appearance of Cleaning: 9
- The pine fence looked almost brand new when the wood dried!
Overall Score for Gemini Restore-A-Deck Kit: 9
- Gemini’s Restore-A-Deck Kit is an excellent product to restore weathered wood or for prepping a stain for reapplication. Hard to beat the cost and ease of use.
