Re: Cleaning Teak
Just to clarify, the "black" is not a stain - engine oil or anything, nor is it mould, it is simply old, filthy teak oil with decades of grime, handprints etc. added in. Where I have cleaned it, it came out nice, only needing sanding with 180 grit to bring the natural colour back to the wood.
I was just hoping for something that would "wipe" the old oil off - the ZEP requires a lot of work, repetition and scrubbing.
I completely forgot about TSP - I'll try that.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
