I took the Cetol off my teak several years ago when I switched to Armada, and used a Makita palm grip sander with 80 grit paper. The folks that originally turned on to Cetol had suggested 80 grit for prepping for Cetol, and it removes it nicely as well. The sander takes one-fourth of a standard sandpaper sheet, and it orbits so rapidly that it leaves a nice smooth finish. Easy to control, too.
FWIW, I much prefer the color of Armada to Cetol. I had used the original Cetol formulation, and it was too orangey for me. Though Armada has some pigments, the color is much more natural.
