Cleaning Teak Furniture (kept outdoors)

Posted by kate8smith (My Page) on

I have had teak furniture on my covered porch, for four years. Today I cleaned it. I used a two part "system" that my hub had used on a boat, a few years back. I am pleased w/ the overall results, however think perhaps it should be oiled at this point. Anybody out there have experience w/ outdoor teak furniture?

RE: Cleaning Teak Furniture (kept outdoors)

If you are pleased with the results then I would oil it. I have no experience with teak outdoors but I do know that oiling keeps any wood from cracking and rotting. I also know that indoor teak should be oiled. My friend has a lot of teak furniture, including a dining table, and it came with instructions to oil it with teak oil.
