Uses

Teak oil is used for preserving the natural characteristics of wood. Teak oil penetrates deep into wooden furniture to protect it from mildew since it is water-resistant. Danish oil is also used to treat different wood types. It is safe to use indoors as well as outdoors. It is less harsh than teak oil and can be used to treat toys for children and wooden kitchen counter tops because it is non-toxic and safe.

Application

Teak oil and Danish oil can be easily applied with a paint brush or a clean rag or cloth. Saturate the cloth and rub it onto the wood until there are no puddles and all oil is absorbed into the wood.

Drying Time

A medium coat of teak oil will dry somewhere between 12 and 24 hours, while a thin coat dries between 6 and 12 hours. A medium coat of Danish oil usually dries between 12 and 18 hours and a thin layer will dry in about 4 hours.

Cleaning

Any spills of teak or Danish oil should be cleaned while they are still wet with a cotton cloth.

Warnings

Teak oil and Danish oil are very flammable and could self-ignite if left unopened in a warm space. Both fumes could be harmful if inhaled, so be sure to use them in well ventilated areas.
