Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MonsterMash Waste of money and time
After having tried vinegar, bleach, and baking soda in various combinations and not even getting close to getting my shaded deck clean, I broke down and tried this product mixed per label instructions and then full-strength. I waited 10 minutes and then 30 minutes after applications to make sure it had enough time to work. And then SCRUBBED like a crazy person because I just KNEW it was going to work this time! It did absolutely nothing. Huge waste of time and money. Ended up just power washing after all; worked like a charm.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by calm1 Adequate, not spectacular, deck cleaner.
somewhat disappointed in this product. Purchased because I really like the Restore Deck Products.The cleaner is adequate, but did not clean as completely as I expected. Was better after a second try, but did not think it should have been necessary to use twice to achieve result I expected.

... if you have bleach and detergent at home.
I found no advantage to using Restore ($1.50/gal of finished product) to clean my deck compared to a home-mix of water, bleach and liquid laundry detergent (<$1/gal of finished product).
Of course, if you have to go get bleach or detergent, then it's a wash.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by c4stu DECORATIVE CONCRETE CONTRACTOR REVIEW
Okay..... so after reading many of the reviews for this product I felt it necessary as a professional contractor to chime in and give my two cents for what it's worth. Keep in mind folks that this product is a preparatory product NOT! an end product to produce sparkly "Mr. Clean" results transforming blemished decks and concrete pads into newly looking surfaces. To remove moss and stains from concrete entirely takes profiling the surface with mechanical etching equipment, same goes for wood decks to remove scaling of old paint ( mechanical equipment being different for each surface mind you ) So this product is not intended as an end product but is to serve as a preparatory product to recondition the chemical composition of a concrete slab to stabilize the PH in the concrete while at the same time removing as many foreign particulates as possible... "chemically profiling" NOT! "mechanically profiling" the substrate... While other processes require you to purchase a 1. a cleaner 2. a degreaser 3. chemical profiler 4. a chemical neutralizer... This product with LOW ! V.O.C. has all the above in one unit... Compare that to other industrial specific products and the Value of this "concentrated" product is superb. As far as performance ALL! substrates are different from one to the next... so while others will require a simple chemical prep, others may require mechanical prep and sorry to be the one to break that news to you but thats the brass tacks facts... NOW ALL THAT SAID! for the money "value" and what this product is intended to do " chemically prep " & balance the PH in the concrete... this product does the job it was designed to do... Follow up with the appropriate coating and you will increase your chances of a superior bond and decrease your chances of bond failure which many coatings products get a bad name because individuals do not "PREP" properly... your coating will only be and will always remain to be as good or as strong as your prep work.. Also keep in mind that for concrete it is a very good idea to look for an efflorescent or MVB ( moisture vapor barrier ) in liquid form to apply to the slab after prep but before your coating... this is the number one cause of spalling or delaminating of the coating of which the coating product get a bad wrap... SEE WHERE I AM GOING WITH ALL THIS. ? it's not the product often times it's usually the operator... Sorry if you disagree but that is my two cents...

If you want to waste your money, buy this product. No comparison to behr all in one wood cleaner, Works like water alone, May work on concrete but for wood patio furniture, TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!
I COULD HAVE used straight water ON MY CHAIRS WITH BETTER RESULTS

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Benton Worked very well.
No complaints. Filmy appearance made seeing where covered easy. Dried clear, and a little glossy; which seems sufficient for areas of wood that are visible and don't get much weather.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Poetsteve OK, but not as good as Behr
The Behr is more expensive and the label says it covers less area but it works better in dilution than this cleaner. I have to go back over a number of areas with a more concentrated dilution because it didn't come clean on first scrub. Not a bad value but not the best product for the job.

Not the answer if you are looking for an easy claner to use. DOesn't do well with old decks and mildew. Cleans a little and will take multiple applications with a lot of elbow grease; tried full strength with no difference. Haven't gotten the decl clean yet. Would rate it below bleach for a one-time application.
