Re: Rejuvenating Interior Wood

I know some people apply a varnish on their interior teak but we use heavy cleaning and lemon oil.

We first scrub and clean the teak with a soft detergent and then if needed, work up to a harder detergent where stains and other marks are visible.
After we clean, we apply two coats of Weiman polish lemon oil. Apply the oil, let it sit for 20 seconds or so, and then wipe off and rub. We used a few other lemon oils in the past but they end up drying out quickly or drying out the teak wood. Weiman brings out the reddish grain in the wood. I would avoid teak oil as it will develop mildew.
