Cleaning Garden Furniture
The first step is to clean the garden furniture to remove any dirt, grime, mould and mildew from the surface. As you clean the garden furniture you’ll also notice the original honey colour of the wood starting to be restored.
Take the Teak Cleaner and shake the bottle well before use.
Mix the cleaner into a bucket of warm water at a ratio of 1:5 (1 part Teak Cleaner to 5 parts warm water). Dip a Scrubbing Brush into the mixture and scrub the surface to loosen and dirt and grime. Wipe the wood down using a clean, lint-free cloth.
Rinse the wood with clean water to remove any excess Teak Cleaner. Allow to dry.
A green scouring pad can be used with the cleaning solution to get into hard to reach areas. Fine sandpaper (P320) can be used to rub the surface down (after it has been cleaned and dried) if the furniture feels rough. This will create a lovely smooth surface and help with oil absorption later on.
Brightening Garden Furniture
Brightening the furniture will further enhance the natural colour of the wood and kill off any remaining mould spores that survived cleaning!
Take the Teak Brightener and shake the bottle well before use. Put on the protective gloves.
Mix the Teak Brightener into a bucket of water at a ratio of 1:1. Apply to a clean, lint-free cloth and rub into the garden furniture following the direction of the grain. Leave for a few minutes and then rinse down with clean water.
As you apply the product you will notice more of the original garden furniture colour reappearing in the wood.
Oiling Garden Furniture
Take the Teak Oil and shake the bottle well before use. Ensure the garden furniture is clean and dry.
Apply the Teak Oil liberally to a lint-free cloth and rub into the garden furniture following the direction of the grain. Leave for a few minutes and then wipe off any excess. Leave the Oil to thoroughly soak in and dry for between 4-6 hours.
For best results and to help make future maintenance easier, you should apply three coats of oil to your garden furniture. Ensure the last has thoroughly dried before applying the next coat.
You should clean and reoil garden furniture once a year. You shouldn’t need to use the Brightener every time but you can choose to do so if you think the furniture has weathered badly, or if you don’t get round to applying the oil every year.
