Oh, because oil in the teak is always working it's way to surface whenever it's sanded. I'm sure you felt the oily when you were sanding it. it even clogs the sandpaper. The acetone dries the surface and helps the finish bond to the teak. I've done it with and without using the acetone, the finish seems last a little longer.

You can try wiping down with solvent or sand again. Always wipe bare teak with acetone before any finish or glue.

Re: East coast Lady Update

allot of people had used the old type of cetol that was opaque with a heavy orange tint to it .. very fugly..

Teak is loaded with it's own oils and nothing stays on it very long. all oils will "carbonized" from UV exposure too.

That being said, I like weathered teak in it's looks too. I did chose to use finish on the exterior on my boat though. Other woods that turn gray or silver are; white oak, mahogany, many of the cedars, pine, I think just rots and turns black.

Yes it is. So is "last place," but neither is a finish to be bragging about.

Sorry, I'm all about the varnish. Properly applied, quality varnish will outlast Cetol with minimal upkeep.

IMO it's the marine equivalent of aluminum siding and fake shutters.
