It’s summer. You have a deck, and want to use it. But every time you look out on your backyard, the dull, faded tones of your deck make you want to close the blinds, and never go outside again.

What about bleach? You can use household bleach to brighten wood, for sure. Just like your clothes, it lightens the wood’s color and kills some mildew. But, getting any amount of bleach on plant foliage will cause plants to lose their leaves, and you’ll be getting bleach everywhere, where your kids, pets, and plants live. Definitely not fun for the whole family.

Even though it sounds like a sports car (and it certainly performs like one), X-180 is the all-in-one solution to faded, dirt-covered, mildew or fungus-ridden wood. Whatever is making your wooden deck or home look sad, X-180 is the trick to get it looking great again. 

Oh, and if you have mill glaze on your new wood, it can fix that too.

I had a pretty small but pretty important job at our “new” 1956 mid-century modern house. The front entryway had rough paneling (maybe Western Fir?) that had been badly neglected. It was very dirty, weathered, and gray – and just kinda ugly. After much thoughtful and patient consulting with your staff, we selected the X-180 for cleaning – WOW! That stuff is amazing! The wood came clean and popped out red, like cedar.

X-180 neutralizes paint strippers, stain strippers, and bleach solutions. It even restores the natural pH of the wood, which is important for the longevity of the wood. You still have to rinse it off, but the runoff is biodegradable, so it won’t harm the environment.

Everyone here can’t believe the results with X-180, and they are tough to convince about any product!
