Painting a Bench After Cleaning With Bleach

Category Outdoor

I cleaned a bench with bleach and now I want to paint it. How do I neutralize the bleach so paint will stick?

Vinegar nutralizes bleach but if you washed the bench and let it dry a few days the bleach nutralizes itself. This is why you have to keep adding chlorine to a swimming pool. It is only good for so so long. Also if you put bleach mixed with water in a spray bottle thinking you have a good disinfectant, the bleach in it is no good after a few days.

Lilac is right. And if you put it in the sun it will happen faster.

Well, I was going to answer you, but Lilac beat me to it. :)
Use the distilled vinegar to get a good neutralization. Or stick the bench in direct sunlight for an afternoon.
