The pieces of teak furniture are some respected members of the world of outdoor furniture. Consistency and natural teak oil allows teak furniture to hardly experience any damage or change due to humidity or extreme sunlight. Teak is wood, so it is prone to change color from time to time. The good news for teak furniture owners and prospective owners is that it can be recovered and potentially looks like new furniture no matter what age. Buyers of antique furniture can also breathe a sigh of relief as it allows turning old furniture into an almost new one. Due to the popular Danish Modern style of the 50s and 60s, teak furniture has become an icon of vintage furniture. The gray color of rotten teak wood is beautiful for some people while others prefer the original honey color from the new teak wood.

The first thing you need to do is wash the teak furniture gently with a teak soap. This soap can be found in a local hardware store or home improvement. Washing done before sanding because removing all the dust and dirt will first prevent problems during sanding. Before the next step is done, the teak furniture should be completely drained.

The tools you need for this process are soft grain sand paper, orbital sander, gloves, and goggles. A cloth under the furniture can also be laid to reduce the cleaning time after sanding is complete. All parts of the furniture should be sanded evenly and no gray should be displayed before proceeding to the next step. Now you need to wipe the furniture with cloth very carefully to remove all the dust particles present from the sanding step. Extra attention is required immediately after sanded if you do not plan to apply the oil immediately and stains are very likely to occur at this stage if the furniture is not oiled properly. Teak furniture should be completely clean and dry before applying the oil. Teak oil needs to be purchased to restore natural oils already found in teak.
Teak oil should be smeared with a soft cloth or brush and done one layer at a time with drying time in between. Teak oil will be easily carried and absorbed into the furniture when applied. The color of natural honey will quickly begin to shine. Furniture should be allowed to dry and absorb all oil before applying the coat more. Teak furniture will eventually stop absorbing teak oil, which is your sign to stop applying the oil. After all the oil is absorbed and everything is dry, you should apply teak sealant to protect the oil so as not to lose due to its elements. This sealant will be easy to find in your local hardware or home improvement store.
