Re: Teak Deck Treatments - The Best ?

Half an hour - now that sounds encouraging ! Watched a video yesterday (they were applying teak oil to a deck) where they were using a pad on the end of a long handle (like a floor sponge). It made the job look a whole lot easier, so I think the process will be to do the diddly bits, then wipe over with the pad arrangement - might even be enjoyable !. I must say, seeing that rich teak colour convinved me that a protective coating is the way to go.
Scrubbing - yes, I have already ordered the softest of brushes. I don't want to be scrubbing away the soft parts of the wood and leaving tramlines. I gues another plus for the coatings - they must have some densifying and protective advantage for the soft parts, even though the natural teak oils prevent penetration to any extent

Thanks,

David
