Just cleaning up a treated unstained deck

I have done some decks in the past, stripping neutralizing etc and have come out once but don't do a ton of them. I personally have a treated fir deck at home that has never been stained or sealed and is in need of a spruce up. I think some time ago I was told there is a certain cleaner that has stripper properties but isnt as harsh? Or is there something completely different for me. I don't think ill have to brighten after unless i use something really High PH to clean it with. What the best thing to use just to get off the greying etc.

Sodium Precarbinate works very well on decks with no stain to strip off.I like it at 6 0z per gallon deticated sprayer not recommended for pump spray application.

Yeah I know online but was finding it in 10# + and now way need that much. Thanks for the info. I knew Oxi clean had pre carb but that it was not much as far as percentage but looking into it it should be strong enough for what i need.

yeah I'm doing mine and my daughters. Mine isn't all that huge and hers is very small in the city. I don't do decks per say, mainly just flatwork and graffiti with commercial accounts. I don't like residential all that much, did a lot of it when i first started in the biz until i found flatwork!! Ill do townhouse groups sometimes as there is more to make in one stop, one time set up and tear down. No one hanging around watching and that sort of thing. And better $$ and margin.
Thanks for your help.

Try looking for SODIUM PERCARBONATE works really well but need dissolving with hot water to apply. I put it on with a soft house wash brush for a small area works just as well.
Sorry I can't help with sodium PREcarbonate. Did try Googling it with no results.
