This article will take you through the steps of cleaning and handling teak to keep it golden.
However, keep in mind that even though the treated teak is treated and sealed, it turns silver gray from the UV rays of the Sun, unless it is done on a regular basis.
Many products today contain pigments, UV interceptors or absorbers, mildew-proof agents and moisture protection that can be sealed and protected in one step.
I would recommend going to a local marine store as teak is used on board and they can be a good source of information for teak sealers.

Step 1 if you are sealing the new teak, I suggest you let it sit in the sun for a week or so and open the wood grain.
At this point, cleaning with a gentle detergent and sponge should be all needed before applying teak sealant.
Let the wood dry completely, usually overnight.
Step 2 brush on the teak seal with a paint brush or spray.
Then wipe the sealant in with a soft cloth.
Be sure to apply a layer between all areas of the furniture, including the top, bottom, side and all slats.
Before putting on the second coat, let the first coat dry completely.
Areas such as the table top that are easily stained by food, drinks or other items that can penetrate the sealer should be sealed with teak clear coating.
Keep in mind that there is natural oil on the surface of the teak, which can result in varnish, polyurethane and water sealing, debris and stripping.
Therefore, the \"teak\" transparent coating is always used.
Step 3 if your teak terrace furniture has begun to turn silver
Gray, you want to restore it to the original golden or honey color, you have to clean the wood first before applying the teak sealant.
Follow the steps of the first step above to start cleaning the wood.
If there is mildew, try cleaning with a soft brush and liquid Ivory soap.
Chlorine bleach or ammonia with water or mildew products (such as Tilex or X-) If mildew spots persist-14 can be used.
Whenever the wood is cleaned using bleach or ammonia, it is always rinsed quickly with a large amount of water to avoid the wood becoming white.
Do not mix bleach with ammonia.
There are also two parts of teak cleaners that use caustic sodium and acid to produce excellent results.
Step 4 after cleaning, let the wood dry completely.
Gently polish the wood surface with 320 sandpaper.
Remember to always sprinkle sand in the direction of wood grain.
Clean any sanding dust using a clean dry cloth.
The wood is now ready to re-seal.
