A lot of people here use 75% linseed oil 25% mineral spirits. Please understand that rags wet with linseed oil will self-ignite so don't leave a pile in your garage.

I used Watco teak oil the last time and I will not use it again, it leaves a gummy residue. The star brite teak oil may be better/different.

Nooooooo, whatever you do, don't use a sealer. If you can find a place that has Deks Olje #1 Matte finish, buy ALLL that they have. It is the best stuff I have ever used.

Teak

What I did the past week was power washed then let it dry. Sanded it with 150 to 220 sandpaper, Rinsed it off & let it dry again. Are used a tach cloth to remove any residue. Then I applied linseed oil and mineral spirits at a 75/25 or 80/20 ratio. I waited 24 hours between coats used three coats let try in sun.

Like others have said be careful with the rags - linseed oil is highly flammable. Dispose of properly.
