Sterling Teak Oil for Wood Care

Bo has, besides elbow grease, used Sterling Teak Oil to restore this beautiful chair back to its former glory
Sterling Teak Oil cleans the surface, highlights the tree’s grains and gives new life to the wood. Teakwood should regularly be oiled, otherwise the wood will dry out and get a dull surface. The oil is applied in a thin layer with a clean, lint-free cloth, possibly several times over as Bo has done. When the oil has been absorbed into the wood, wipe it down with a dry cloth.

Did you know that Sterling Polish assures the quality of all their products? The most important thing is that the customer is satisfied and can see the result after using the product.

Tip on how to remove teak oil: Thorough cleaning of the teakwood furniture must be done with a mixture of mineral turpentine and vinegar (300 ml turpentine and 1 tablespoon vinegar). Apply with a cloth. Ensure good ventilation. Leave to dry and then apply the teak oil again.
