OK, while I'm at it, what is the stuff everyone uses on the exterior wood? My toe rails need it bad. I tried regular oil... that ain't it! Some sort of varnish I'm sure.

This year, I sponged off my interior teak laminate with water, then oiled with lemon oil. It looks good and has a pleasant odor.

My outside teak was treated with West Marine teak oil to attain a dark saturated look, also staining parts of the deck. It returned to its regular grey color after about a month and the stains on the deck disappeared. I am not sure I will treat the exterior teak again.
