We get scrubbing to find out what effect a variety of teak cleaners have on the woodwork of a Sigma 38 moored on the River Itchen
PRICE: Cleaner £9.95 (1lt)
PRICE: Renovator £9.95 (1lt)
Another two-stage product, the red cleaner is diluted at 5:1 for badly weathered teak and 10:1 for cleaner teak, and applied to wet wood with a sponge. It’s left for two minutes and then rinsed off before the second, green stage is applied. This brightens the wood and is left until the desired colour is achieved. This cleaner and brightener left the best colour of all the cleaners tested, restoring the red-brown ‘just-sanded’ look better than any of the others.
