Barlow Tyrie Teak Oil (500ml)
Oiling is a traditional method of retaining the original colour of new teak.
We do not recommend the use of teak oil but if you wish to, we offer the following as a guide to the best results:
- Teak oil or stain, should be applied before the furniture begins to weather and change colour.
- Ensure the furniture is dry and free of any dust or dirt and apply one light coat of oil with a clean cloth or brush, wiping off any surplus.
- Teak oil should not be applied over accumulated oil or dirt as the result will be dark and the furniture will eventually blacken.
- If necessary, remove previous oil or dirt by vigorous scrubbing or gentle use of a pressure hose.
- Re-oiling annually should be sufficient.
- Teak is naturally high in oil and the use of oil can result in an overload which will produce black bruise like marks on the wood.
- These marks which form around the grain and often exhibit black lines are likely to prove extremely difficult to remove.
- We therefore recommend the use of teak cleaner followed by colour guard.
- This should be done no more frequently than on an annual basis to keep your Teak furniture looking it's best.
Alternatively, you can allow your Teak to weather naturally for a silver patina.
