Teak furniture is low maintenance product. Teak oil or other preservatives for treating your teak furniture is not necessary; it is purely aesthetic, and will not extend the life of your furniture. We do not recommend applying teak oil on your outdoor furniture, as it creates unnecessary maintenance and can enhance mildew growth and irregular coloring.
Should you decide to treat your furniture with oil or other protective products, we recommend that you wait at least 2 weeks before applying any product and that the furniture be thoroughly washed as described above and dried at least 48 hours. Dirt and residue trapped between the teak protector and the wood surface may result in mildew growth and irregular coloring. Always test the teak protector on an inconspicuous area to ensure you are satisfied with the results.
