Teak furniture is an affordable and highly durable wood that works well as a furniture base. To keep the furniture looking its best, clean it regularly and also incorporate a treatment that moisturises the teak. This prolongs the overall life of the furniture plus keeps the teak looking its best for many years.

Clean to remove build-up and oil the teak every few months, or as needed when you notice dulling of the wood.

Mix 2 cups water, 1 tsp white vinegar and 3 drops liquid dish soap in a spray bottle. Shake to mix ingredients.

Spray this solution onto a cleaning rag and wipe over the teak furniture.

Allow the teak to fully air-dry for an hour or so.

Moisten the edge of a fresh cleaning rag with teak oil. Rub the oil into the teak, rubbing with the direction of the wood grain.

Allow the teak oil to absorb and air-dry fully.
