Lemon works like I said

I watched Lyle Jamieson wipe a sliced lemon on wet walnut sapwood at an Indy Fest to keep it white. So I feel certain it works since I witnessed the positive effect.

LEMONS

Pros: Lemons are a super-safe household staple. You don’t have to worry about kids getting into them or harmful residue left over after cleaning. Much like bleach, concentrated citrus peel oils have been proven to be strong antimicrobials. Recent studies have shown that lemon juice and lemon peel oil are effective at removing multiple bacterial strains, including salmonella and E. coli. The pH of lemon juice is similar to vinegar, which is also recommended for mold removal and treatment. This acidity means that lemons can help to safely break down grime and remove stains.
