Restoring Original Color of sun bleached Teak Wood

Once Teak Wood is bleached by the elements, its original color can still be restored either by chemical application or by a light sanding.

Teak Cleaners are available from several sources (including Goldenteak). These cleaners are caustic, and restore the color by removing a fine layer of the wood and raising the grain slightly. If you use such a teak cleaner, please be sure to rinse the furniture thoroughly, until the residue stops foaming. This may take several rinses. After the rinsing, let the furniture dry thoroughly, and then apply the teak oil finish.

A Light Sanding of the bleached wood will remove the top bleached layer, and also restore the original color. Once again, you will need to apply the teak oil shortly after the sanding process to prevent further bleaching.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Hi I will make a note to do the facebook post! I LOVE my bench and you were so helpful to me with the peg issue. I was so afraid to sand them down, but that seemed to do the trick. I have also used teak oil on the bench and it really is gorgeous out in my yard. Thank you again for all of your help . The bench is very well made and very high quality. Its always a risk ordering on line, but your website was really good and then customer service top notch! MD - GA

10/2/2015 You can trust these guys.  I have been let down many times in my years of internet shopping; but Goldenteak is entirely reliable. Every piece I have purchased has been exactly as promised with expert packing, simple assembly and lasting satisfaction.  I bought my first table from them almost a decade ago and no longer think of shopping elsewhere for teak products.  The Chappy love seat and ottomans combined with the hamper/side table look smashing with older pieces on our screened porch.  Thanks for being there.    JL, MA  See Photo here.(Teak Deep Seating Love Seat, Teak Deep Seating Ottoman, Teak Hamper).
