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.
Just wanted to let you know that we absolutely love our 6ft teak bench (Hyde Park Teak Bench) and buffet table (Teak Buffet Server) that we picked up at your warehouse. We found the perfect spot for the bench underneath our Weeping Cherry, overlooking our little pond. And the buffet is just right for our three season porch! We did decide to put a sealer on them so we are hoping they retain that golden hue. Either way they are perfect. I am looking for two 4ft benches if you should ever have any in your warehouse. Thanks again and enjoy the Spring! LL (See Photo Here)
9/17/15 - The bench was delivered
promptly, was easy to assemble and, once oiled, displayed beautiful rich wood
grain. This is perfect for our family gatherings and for getting
"horizontal" in front of our outdoor fireplace. We couldn't be happier
with the bench. SL, FL. (R804)
