svHyLyte is on a distinguished road

The next time you really need to clean your teak, try using some "Greased Lightening" from Lowes or Home Depot.

I don't knw what's in it but it does a heck of a good job cleaning up teak (brush across the grain!) and it's far less costly than the teak cleaners at marine outlets.

When you apply the teak oil, be sure to wipe down the caulking with a clean cloth soaked in Mineral Spirits to keep that clean. Works like a charm.
