Lightening stairs *PIC* ()

Do they have any scraps of the new floor? It looks like white oak to me from the picture. Some of it is labeled on the back. Traditionally, if it has red text on it, it's red oak. IF the text is black, it's white oak.

Don't have much experience with the bleach, but it's messy and has to stay on the wood as much as overnight. I doubt the client wants to live in the house while that is going on.

You could sand and stain or pickle the treads to lighten them. Won't match, but will be lighter.
