Question Cleaning Teak

I have a 1979 Ericson 27 that I am restoring. The finish on the teak woodwork in the cabin is in horrible shape. The wood itself is solid, but the finish is covered in oil, grease, and dirt. Can anyone suggest a quality cleaner or cleaning method that will remove the grease and oil well?

I'd start by following Don Casey's advise, especially when using oxalic acid to clean dirty teak.
