3M 5200 & Teak Cleaners

My keel was recently rebedded and 3M 5200 was applied around bolts where they enter bilge.

I was planning on a thorough cleaning of interior teak this Spring using teak Cleaner. I have heard that teak cleaner is bad for polyurethane based adhesives like 3M 4200 and 5200.

Any thoughts on the impact that this cleaner entering the bilge will have when interior teak is rinsed during cleaning process? Is there a better product for cleaning teak that does not harm 5200?

Thanks,

Mike Hoyt
