The job of cleaning is best tackled when the furniture is very wet – preferably after a night’s rain. Warm soapy water and a soft bristled scrubbing brush or scotchbrite pad will remove most mottled, patchy environmental and man made stains.
• Don’t attempt to clean teak furniture unless it’s very wet.
• Don’t attempt cleaning in direct sunlight on a hot day.
• Keep the furniture as wet as possible while cleaning.
• Stubborn stains can be sanded off with fine sandpaper
Weathered teak furniture which has become “too rustic” in appearance will be very clean and uniform in colour after this process. If some of the original colour of the teak is beginning to show through, don’t worry, it will weather down to that beautiful silver grey colour again quite quickly.
