TOPIC: Lime sulfur alternatives

Lime sulfur alternatives 2 months 3 weeks ago #41721

Is anyone aware if there are any alternatives to using lime sulfur for bleaching to create deadwood appearance.

Lime sulfur is not easily available in Singapore, hence looking for alternatives.

As found on the Internet:
"There are wood bleaches available such as oxalic acid which would lighten wood. I've always found that the sun does a good job though.....but perhaps in different parts of the world the sun can't compete with the rain and moss."

People in my club carefully use diluted bleach, but they might just be crazy.

I wouldn't use it.
They ARE probably crazy.
