Re: Grime on interior teak

Hi Hudsonian!

Generally, it is best to try the least caustic remedy first like some of the oils & cleaners mentioned (eg., Murphy's oil soap).
If result is still unsatisfactory ramp up to de-natured alcohol with a scotch brite pad.
If that still leaves stains I'd next try Oxalic acid in the form of Barkeeper's Friend.
Oxalic acid IS the main ingredient of 1 part teak cleaners.
If that does not work than dynamite will make the stain go away! :Just Kidding

Baby sterilizing fluid is bleach at 1% instead of 5% so you can just use bleach watered down 1part:4 parts water




Bleach works and is safe.

Thanks. Now I have one more reason to be thankful that the Ericson owners' site is privately owned and chooses not to accept advertising.

BTW, I am not talking about the conversion of gear-name words to links to stuff-for-sale on this site -- those words remain and just look a bit funny with their little underlines.
Adding text that the author never said, OTOH, is just wrong.

That's OK, we are all rather cautious of anyone who is "asleep at the wheel" !

Pictures... somewhere on the cam chip or the HD. Still looking...
Sorry 'bout that.

ps: just noticed that someone with Admin. powers had added a sentence to my prior post. I changed it back. It seemed to reference stuff that might link to the chandler part of this site. Odd. I guess that it was someone with some "admin" powers since they left no footprints.
