This is a natural process of the wood. You can restore the clarity of the wood with a solution of water and oxalic acid. Oxalic acid is used to bleach bare or uncoated wood only.
Caution: Oxalic acid is poisonous. Wear rubber gloves and safety goggles to prevent the chemical from touching your skin or eyes. Also, dont use a metal bucket, which can react with the chemicals.
Before using oxalic acid, read all of the information on the container so you understand the safety precautions and instructions. Before applying the oxalic acid solution, its important to clean the wood to remove any dirt and grime. You should also test the solution in an inconspicuous spot. You may need to dilute the solution to achieve the desired results or apply it multiple times to remove difficult stains.
To lighten and restore the natural tones of the wood without affecting the patina, use 3 to
5 ounces (8 to 15 ml) of oxalic acid per each gallon (3.8 L) of hot water. The solution can be applied with a spray bottle, brush, or cloth.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
Dissolve 12 to 16 ounces (35 to 47 ml) of oxalic acid crystals in 1 gallon (3.8 L) of hot water. For best results, use the solution while its hot. With a scrub brush, apply the solution liberally to the wood and allow it to remain until the desired lightness has been achieved. Triplerinse the wood with clean water and allow it to dry thoroughly. When completely dry, lightly sand the surface, if needed, and wipe it down with a damp cloth.
