Description

Our Teak Oil is formulated using a traditional recipe of pure, high quality Tung and Linseed Oil so is completely safe and non-toxic. This blend of oils allows the Teak Oil to not only restore the beauty of old and weathered teak furniture, but it will also protect and waterproof exotic wood and hardwoods. Teak Oil can be used to seal and protect unfinished or bare wood and to also maintain it on an ongoing basis. Ideal for garden furniture; treating your furniture with Teak Oil will help prevent it from weathering as it holds UV protection agents which slows down the greying process of not just teak, but all other interior, and exterior wood. If this has happened to your furniture already, you can use our Garden Furniture Restoration Kit to restore the attractive honey colour to the teak.

Using Teak Oil from the day you purchase your teak will help the wood stay in better condition for longer.

Preparation

Before applying the Teak Oil ensure the surface is dry, clean and dust free.

Indoor wood: Use our Wood Cleaner to remove any dirt and grime. 

Outdoor wood: Use our Teak Cleaner to remove any dirt and grime. The Teak Cleaner will also help to restore the colour if the wood is looking grey.

If there are any old residues of finish, varnish or wax on the wood wipe it down with White Spirit to remove these.

Application

Shake the bottle well before use. If you are unsure of the finish, test it on an unseen area first.

Apply the Teak Oil liberally to a lint-free cloth and rub into the wood following the direction of the grain. Leave for a few minutes and then wipe off any excess. Leave the Teak Oil to thoroughly soak in and dry for between 4-6 hours.

Bare Wood: If you are applying Teak Oil to bare wood for the first time you’ll need to apply three coats. Wait until the first coat has thoroughly dried (4-6 hours) before applying the second coat of Teak Oil.

Maintenance

For maintenance of new or used items, simply re-oiling once a year is sufficient for all year round protection. Further coats can be applied to high use areas, if required.

The below image shows how the Teak Oil enhances the natural beauty of various shades of wood. In the examples below we have applied it to Beech, Oak and Walnut so you can see how it looks on light, medium and dark coloured woods. 

 

Teak Oil Comparison

Q. Does Teak Oil stain wood?

A. No, it is not a wood stain. However, it will help to restore the honey colour look Teak should have. Restoring this colour completely can be achieved using our Garden Furniture Restoration Kit that contains Teak Cleaner, Teak Brightener and Teak Oil, rather than using a stain.

Q. What does the final finish look like? I’d like to know before I complete the full job.

A. Our Teak Oil leaves a nice, natural matt finish.

We recommend testing this on some spare wood, or in an inconspicuous area before applying it directly to your project.

Q. Will Teak Oil protect wood against spillages and stains?

A. Yes. Our Teak Oil provides a great resistance to water and staining. This is why we highly recommend it for garden furniture.

Q. Is Teak Oil safe to use on wooden toys, or items used by children?

A. Yes, once dry our Teak Oil is completely safe and compliant with Articles In Contact With Food regulations.

Q. How often should I reoil my garden furniture?

A. For routine maintenance and all year-round protection, we recommend re-applying our Teak Oil once every 12 months. One coat is sufficient for this.

Q. I have teak inside and outside my house; can it be used on both?

A. Yes, our Teak Oil is excellent for woods both indoors and out, especially for use on garden furniture.

Q. Why does teak turn grey overtime?

A. Teak naturally fades from a golden-honey colour to a grey/ silver colour; this is due to weathering. The natural oils disperse as they absorb UV rays form the sun, which starts to dry the wood out and fades the colour. Some people prefer this look, however if you do not, it can be easily rectified using our Garden Furniture Restoration Kit, which contains our Teak Cleaner, Teak Brightener and Teak Oil. This kit will eliminate and kill any mould on your furniture, along with bringing back the lovely honey colour to your wood.
