Teak furniture can be cleaned with soapy water and a soft
bristle brush to remove accumulated dirt. The furniture should be rinsed well so
that the dirt and soap do not leave behind drying stains.
Pressure washing is not recommended, since it can scour and roughen the wood surface. It is best to clean teak furniture with a sponge or a non abrasive dish scrubber.
Most stains on teak can be washed or wiped off with a mild
soap and water solution. Stains from fat or red wine, or colorful children’s
juice drinks may take more effort. For such stubborn stains use a weak solution
of bleach and water combined with dishwashing detergent. You can use a non
abrasive pot scrubber or soft brush to agitate the surface. If the stain still
persists a light sanding with 150 grit sand paper will do the trick.
Of course, if you let the stains remain, they will slowly fade over time with exposure to the elements. The cleaning process described above is only necessary if you wish to remove the stain quickly.
10/27/2015 - Dear Goldenteak: The pair of rockers arrived strapped on a pallet but the truck driver very kindly managed to get the whole thing to my front door via my horseshoe gravel drive on his movable lift! Dismantling all the pieces of the shipment and getting them to the assembly area was easier than I thought it would be for this 66 year old woman and her trusty dolly. Anyway, the real joy was how easily the chair assembly was. I had them assembled in no time and was rocking away on my covered porch within a couple of hours.
I finally have a comfy and sunless spot (at least most of the day as you will see from the photos) to read and look over the desert without constantly dealing with our brutal sun. Thanks to Goldenteak for yet another fine product.
I am now wishing I had bought a small teak table to place between the two rockers for drinking glasses, to put down your book, etc... Thanks again. JJT, Tuscon, AZ (Teak Carolina Rocker TCR from Goldenteak) See Customer Photo Here
These Providence Chairs are extremely comfortable and very well made. They are even more comfortable than they look. We purchased an Oval Extension Table, some Providence chairs with arms and some without. We also got a couple of the Portsmouth Recliners. All the products are excellent. The table was very easy to assemble - just put on the legs. The chairs needed no assembly. I am recommending Goldenteak to my friends.
