Wood deck cleaner/brightener....?

This is a red cedar deck 10 y/o and last stained two years ago with Messmer UV Plus, oil based, Oxford Brown. Looks OK to me but DW would like it to be spiffed up a bit. Is there a cleaner/brightener I can use....and how is it done. Or any alternatives ? TIA

Pics ?
I rarely use wood brighteners but I normally clean decks with a bleach solution which pretty much does the same thing - but either one only brightens raw wood. It has little/no effect over stain [other than cleaning]

I use a bleach solution just like Mark.
