Wood Brightening/Lightening: 9
– We used the Citralic Wood Brightener on a fence that was cleaned first with its sister product, EFC-38. The Citralic brightener lightened the wood within 5-10 minutes of application.
Cost Per Square Foot: 10
– The Citralic brightener was applied to 1000 feet of fencing. One 2 pound container covered this entire area. Cost per square foot was $.02 a square foot.
Ease of Application: 8
– Citralic is a powder concentrate that mixes with water at 6 oz. per gallon. The powder dissolves easily into the water and the applies well with a garden sprayer. We would have given it a higher square if it was easier to get the powder out of the container. It was slightly “sticky.
– Citralic is an excellent and extremely cost effective wood brightener.
