    • I'm sure most of the products are of the same quality, but I've always used Watco Teak oil. Watco makes a variety of stains and varnishes for furniture. I've used their product when working and its top notch. Just my 2 cents.

      • Alright, so I am in the process of redoing my teak. I am fairly certain they used some sort of varnish previously on this teak, but looks like most of it is gone and or I have sanded it off. However, I sanded with 220 and have used the StarBrite Teak Cleaner and Teak brightener, and my teak still looks very dark and stained with too many black/real dark lines. Am I over thinking this? Or...

        Do i need to sand more and repeat the cleaner and brightener? Or should i move on to Oil or what? Need some thoughts and help on this! Thanks!

        • Did you only sand with 220? I started with 80 and did not use the brightener and only used soap and water to clean. I think the 80 grit looked after most the problems.
          Picture is a little small but I had the dark lines you refer to and the sanding looked after it for the most part, still had some when i oiled but it looks fine.

            Thanks for the response. Was thinking about getting 100 or 150 grit out first and giving it a good once over then 220 and then clean it up again.

            • I do not know if anyone has mentioned the product by Sikkens called Cetol. I use the satin finish, it wears like iron and makes the teak look like new. I give my platform a quick cleaning and sanding and apply Cetol only once every three years. This product is commonly used on the deck teak on sailboats and yachts.

                        • deeper sanding 80-100 grit will open up the grain better so the oils will penetrate better

                          • What are you using for a finish and did you use anything to clean it first?

                            • Used a "West marine" teak cleaner and brightener, on our sailboat we used spic n span and bleach and our teak was always perfect, guess I should have gone with that. I did not start with 80 grit, went straight to the 220. The light places are crevices in the grain, I guess I need more sanding A lot of high and low spots. I used starbright teak oil.
