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.
06/08/2016 - I received the set .I was surpised it was not put together (the chairs) it was no problem thou to put together the quality of the wood was surprisingly good . I would make one change and that would be to taper the wood pins so they would help aline the holes a little easer. 2 coats of teak oil and my set is outstanding in color. I am a wood refinisher and I am happy. PJ Bothell, WA (Teak Patio Dining Set for 6 Rectangular Table 6 Millbrook Chairs )
Wow! this table is fantastic! I looked locally and the prices were so high, I looked online and found you and this table is far superior to my local store. The top is thicker and legs are solid chunks. Thank you for having this kind of quality at a low price. We saved almost $1200 JS Cambridge MA
