Wash and Clean

Power wash cobwebs and dust from underneath the furniture pieces, including inside the crevices that you may not have looked at!

Use your jitterbug sander, power sander, oscillating sander or belt sander to smooth and restore the color of your teak furniture.

Rinse Teak Wood

While not required, I would recommend rinsing the teak wood again to rinse of the last remaining residue and let it dry for at least 36 hours.

Apply Teak Oil

The goal of it is to maintain the color.
