Solid Teak Furniture Is Easy to Maintain
Taking care of your outdoor teak furniture is easy, requiring just some soap and water, but there are a couple things you should avoid doing.
- Do not paint: Paint can compromise the oil that is found naturally in the wood, and can cause the wood to dry out.
- Do not stain: Stain can also cause the wood to become dry by leaching out the natural oils.
- Do not pressure wash: Pressure washing teak furniture will make the surface of the wood bumpy and pitted. Spray from a normal garden hose will remove debris just fine.
