bleaching wood

I’ve been experimenting with different finishes for the reclaimed wood that I use. Today I was bleaching wood. I bought oxalic acid to bleach the wood, which I found rather funny because it’s the same acid that’s in rhubarb. Seriously, oxalic acid is what gives rhubarb its distinctive flavor. But apparently it also bleaches wood. I love the things I discover at the hardware store.
