Using Outdoor Cushions on Teak
Before placing any cushions on furniture, remove any dust or dirt by wiping the furniture with a damp cloth. Your premium teak furniture has been fine sanded and there may be some fine residue even after cleaning during manufacture.
Your teak furniture naturally contains oil. Expect some of it to bleed out following the first couple of rainfalls. In order to protect yoru cushions, bring them in when you are expecting rain, or when the furniture is wet. Once the furniture has started weathering (changing color) it is no longer necessary to remove the cushions.
If your cushion gets some marks or discoloring due to saw dust or teak's natural oil as described above, the dirt and discoloration can be removed by light scrubbing with a sponge with dishwashing liquid(like Dawn) and then hosing off the surface. If stronger measures are needed, one may use a paste of dishwashing liquid and Oxyclean.
