UPDATE...We scrubbed the cabin sole with BarKeepers Friend and water...and a white Scotchbrite pad. Rinsed very well with clear water from the garden hose. Toweled dry and then followed up with a couple of rounds using white vinegar and a sponge. After a couple of hours the treatment had made a real improvement. Not perfect but plenty good.

Wood bleach, not Clorox! Use much less water than the directions state, let it sit and dry, wash, reapply

J24 Cabin Sole - Veneer stained-What to do?

My friend brought over his cabin sole and some assorted pieces of teak for me to refinish. The old varnish on the sole was literally falling off. I removed 90% with a broad knife. The rest required sanding. The wood was damp where the varnish was peeling away. I let it dry and hit it with the sander. The holly strips where the wood was damp is darkened (mildew?) and the darker teak is splotchy. I don't want to sand too deep. Is there anything I can use to even it out before applying new varnish?
