Teak Oil of Choice

What is the recommended Teak Platform treatment of choice?
- no oil residue to come off on skis/jackets/gloves
- makes teak look brand new (prevents dried out grey look)
- apply as infrequent as possible

Here's a list of all the ones I could find:

MDR - Amazon's Teak Lustre
MDR - Blend 55 Teak Oil
MDR - Golden Teak Oil
MDR - Lite N' Easy Teak Oil

Interlux - Premium Teak Oil

Mary Kate - Nu-Teak Oil

Starbrite - Teak Oil
Starbrite - Premium Golden Teak Oil
Starbrite - Tropical Teak Oil/Sealer Classic
Starbrite- Tropical Teak Oil/Sealer Natural Light

Meguiar's - Gold Teak Oil

Sikkens - Teak Treatment

Talking

I am sure Harold will snatch this up as soon as he sees it. But just in case Starbrite in the White Bottle is what I use and Mr Teakwood himself uses. So far so good! Or you could take your teak off and send it to Harold be prepared for a half thickness platform upon it return but he is probably to busy sanding as we speak! All in fun Harold your platform Rocks wish I had that time! Have fun teaking!

Eastie is that in the FAQ? http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/faq.php? and at the bottom of each page. I think it is there or do a search on teak platforms.
Here is Harold's post.
