IPE sawdust color

blazsAugust 21, 2011

Hi All

I have been cutting ipe wood in my apartment yesterday. Later I realized that sawdust turns blood red in contact with water. Red stains are almost impossible to clean. Is this normal? How can red stains be removed?

Thank you for your help...

Yikes! I would start with an oxygen bleach. Several companies make it now. Read the instructions on how to mix the powder with hot water. It is very important to activate the bleach.
