BARRETTINE TEAK OIL
An oil for the treatment and enhancement of untreated wood including hardwood. Teak Oil penetrates unsealed wood leaving a natural, water resistant finish ideal for outdoor garden furniture and traditional matt finish indoor furniture. Regular use will nourish, revive and feed wood and reduce the weathered appearance of wood giving a satin finish (not suitable for Oak, furniture or flooring).
Use a Garden Furniture Cleaner first to remove lichen, algae, moss and similar detritus for best results where necessary
