Generally - just use a mild solution of bleach and one of those 3M soft abrasive scrub/sand pads in the direction of the grain. Let dry then go over with a rag with water or Murphy's oil soap. Let dry then use your favorite teak oil. Plenty of products that advert all those things but bleach works best IMHO.

I use bleach in water, then wash that away with Dettol in water, then wash it clean, then use Murphy's. Kills everything except the relatives...

dorourke I'll try the lemon oil, what can I loose. Thanks for the help.

I just came back from the boat this evening with a heavt heart. I found a soft spot on the starboard bow of the deck and I am now going to post a cry for help on re conditioning a balsa core laminent.

Thanks again all for the true help I always get from the SailNet community!

sailaway21 Try your basic lemon oil. It will kill the mildew and refresh the naturally oily teak. A regular application will keep not only the wood in good shape but leaves a pleasant smell. (this one falls into that class where you'll say, it can't be that easy, but it is.)

Boasun If the bleach don't work then use osphoric (sp?) acid to bleach out the wood.
Use this a lot when I was on wood mine sweepers in the navy. Turned our wood decks from a dingy gray to a bright white. Even did a number on any place where oil had been spilt.
Don't use it at full strength. A cap full or two in a bucket of water should do the trick.

fcsob Bleach does not kill all molds or mold roots. Impact mold killer really works.Trask Research, Inc. Mold Treatment and Healthcare Products.

moldy teak

How did any of you sucessfully rid your interior of mold on your teak. I have done resurch online with many products claiming to do the job. I am now confused on what to use and what is the best way to do it. This winter was especially hard on my boat since I could not get to tarp it up and now I have some work to do.

I really could use your testimony. I have an oiled interior not varnished and would like to keep it that way if I could.
