I do not know if anyone has mentioned the product by Sikkens called Cetol. I use the satin finish, it wears like iron and makes the teak look like new. I give my platform a quick cleaning and sanding and apply Cetol only once every three years. This product is commonly used on the deck teak on sailboats and yachts.

deeper sanding 80-100 grit will open up the grain better so the oils will penetrate better

What are you using for a finish and did you use anything to clean it first?

Used a "West marine" teak cleaner and brightener, on our sailboat we used spic n span and bleach and our teak was always perfect, guess I should have gone with that. I did not start with 80 grit, went straight to the 220. The light places are crevices in the grain, I guess I need more sanding A lot of high and low spots. I used starbright teak oil.
