Lite-N-Up is a 2-component liquid wood bleach system that will remove the natural color from bare wood. The Lite-N-Up components are mixed prior to application and the degree of bleaching can be controlled by the strength of the Lite-N-Up solution and the number of applications. It may be used prior to the application of a variety of other Wood Kote products. Please refer to the Wood Kote Schedule of Product Compatibility and Recommended Dry Times. Lite-N-Up contains no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and is not a coating, and thus it is not subject to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) VOC emission requirements for Architectural and Industrial Maintenance (AIM) coatings (effective 13Sep99) or California SCAQMD Rule 1113 (effective 14May99).
Depending on the application technique and porosity of the wood, one brush application of Lite-N-Up pre-mixed solution will cover approximately 500 sq ft/gal (12,2 m2/L).
Composition & Properties-
Lite-N-Up Wood Bleach kits consist of equal volumes of "A" and "B" components. Component "A" is an aqueous solution of hydrogen peroxide. Component "B" is an aqueous solution of sodium hydroxide combined with special buffers.

We run a hardwood floor company and use this to achieve lighter white/grey tones when staining floors. Great product - highly recommend!

After a long research we decided to use Lite-N-Up. It works exactly as described. I would highly recommend the product for anyone looking to bleach wood. It took the "red"out of our red oak floors

Worked as described and desired. Only A&B bleach available in "small quantity" although price is still high.

If you're looking to lighten up a hardwood floor, this is the product to use. I researched online and found a few and the others I found are complicated to use. One needed to be kept heated while in use and required multiple rinsing. This product was simple to use, did not have a harsh odor and neutralizes itself, wonderful! It was well worth the price and I couldn't be happier with the results.

This product is great!!! I wanted to lighten the orange/yellow tones in my redoak floors so that I could apply a transparent black shade to go with my grey walls. The bleach worked fantastic without removing grain patterns. I love that it neutralizes itself, and you don't have to rinse it off the floors.
