          A lot of people here use 75% linseed oil 25% mineral spirits. Please understand that rags wet with linseed oil will self-ignite so don't leave a pile in your garage.

          I used Watco teak oil the last time and I will not use it again, it leaves a gummy residue. The star brite teak oil may be better/different.

                  Nooooooo, whatever you do, don't use a sealer. If you can find a place that has Deks Olje #1 Matte finish, buy ALLL that they have. It is the best stuff I have ever used.

                    Teak

                    What I did the past week was power washed then let it dry. Sanded it with 150 to 220 sandpaper, Rinsed it off & let it dry again. Are used a tach cloth to remove any residue. Then I applied linseed oil and mineral spirits at a 75/25 or 80/20 ratio. I waited 24 hours between coats used three coats let try in sun.

                    Like others have said be careful with the rags - linseed oil is highly flammable. Dispose of properly.

                      I used Cetol from West marine as a finish coat. It lasts and stays looking perfect for a whole season, and my boat sits in the water from May to September.

                        Went with Cetol as well. Happy so far with 1 coat.

                        Pressure washed it:



                        Sanded it 400 - 1500 then washed it off and let it dry:

                          The attached looks really thorough. I must admit I go for a less scientific approach. Stainless steel wire wool (gets into all the nooks and crannies that sandpaper can't) wash down then 2 or 3 coats of teak oil. I don't want the surface too smooth.

                              If you use sealer and no sand off you will get a painted look. I did this to mine and I think it takes less maintenance over time.. to get a rich look I would use a good teak oil.
