Re: Rejuvenating Interior Wood

I think if you are planning to bleach any of the teak than you are probably looking at stripping all the teak. The bleach will make the teak much lighter than all the remaining aged teak. Also using lemon oil will darken the teak over time. Sometimes the dried out teak and black water stains are very hard to bring back to original finish without stripping, bleaching or / and sanding.
If you are interested stripping everything and putting a finish on the wood, I have seen people use Varathane oil based poly with excellent results.
A lot of work though....
