How to Clean Teak Furniture
Teak is a durable wood that is incredibly easy to clean. Whether it’s a teak outdoor bench or a table, all you have to do is wash your teak patio furniture with a moist cloth and mild dish detergent. Scrub in the direction of the wood grain and be gentle. Rinse your clean furniture and let dry. As long as you make sure deep stains don’t settle into the wood, cleaning your pieces should be a simple task.
How to Protect Teak Outdoor Furniture
Teak furniture is an investment and depending on your needs, protecting your pieces can be a necessary step. All wooden outdoor furniture develops a beautiful natural gray patina over time. This process doesn’t affect its durability but it will affect the aesthetic style of your teak furniture. If you want to keep your teak chairs and teak outdoor dining table set as fresh and as polished as the day you bought it, consider putting a sealant on all the exposed natural wood. These waterproof and weatherproof coatings will make sure that your pieces maintain their color for years. Although it may sound counterintuitive, keeping your outdoor furniture indoors when weather is particularly bad can help it maintain its natural texture and prevent patina. Furniture covers are also a great way to protect pieces since they provide day-to-day defense from the elements.
