How Do I Restore Teak Furniture?

Answer

You can restore teak furniture by first cleaning it with a solution of mild detergent and water and a soft bristled brush. After the teak has dried, apply teak oil, which will restore it to its original state. If the teak is old, you will need to remove the top layer after cleaning, just before you apply the teak oil.
