Starbrite Teak Brightener 16ozPRICE: £11.47 (500ml)
This two-stage product, each stage bought separately, cleans and brightens the teak. The first is applied to wet teak with a sponge or brush – it’s quite thin – left for two minutes and then rinsed off. The brightener is then added to bring back the colour. We applied cleaner to one plank, and cleaner followed by brightener to another – and you could see the difference, in that the brightened wood looked much better.
