Ronseal Teak Oil will make your garden furniture look good, and give it protection from the weather. Like all teak oils, it’ll last around 6 months and then you’ll need to do it again. If you want something that lasts a bit longer, use our Hardwood Garden Furniture Oil.
BEFORE YOU START
Make sure it’s a warm, dry day (above 10ºC) and that it’s not going to rain. The wood needs to be clean and bare, this’ll help the oil soak in. You’ll need to sand off any paint or stain. Even if your furniture is new, a light sand will get rid of any rough splinters. Put on a face mask so you don’t breathe in the dust. Then give it a quick wipe with white spirit to remove any dirt or grease.
USING YOUR TEAK OIL
First, give the tin a good shake. Pour plenty of oil onto your cloth. Check you’re happy with the colour, find a hidden area like the underside of the table and try it. Wipe the oil onto your furniture, make sure you rub it in well. Wait a couple of minutes, then wipe off any excess. To get the best protection use 3 coats, leaving 24 hours between coats. If you get any oil on yourself, wash it off with warm, soapy water.
For the best protection, you’ll probably need to recoat it every 6 months.
Wash out your cloth and any cleaning rags in warm, soapy water before throwing them away. Sometimes oiled rags can self ignite without a warning. A thorough wash is the best way to stop this. Don’t pour any left over oil down the drain or into watercourses. Your local authority may have special ways to get rid of unused products.
