Instructions for Applying Teak-Nu:

  • Make sure that you have everything you need before you start. It is important to use rubber protective clothing and well as eye goggles. You will also need a hose with spray nozzle and buckets for diluting Snappy Teak Nu. If the deck is in bad shape, concentrated Teak-Nu may be used, otherwise dilute 1:1 with water. On decks that are not warn down soft white "Scotch Brite" pads may be used instead of the special brushes supplied.
  • The deck must be thoroughly wet before applying Snappy Teak - Nu. Water however, makes the soft teak even softer. Softened teak is easy to damage with vigorous brushing, so be careful! If you get Snappy The same is true of some simple varnishes. Taping the aluminium protects it, and even waxing helps.
  • Apply No. 1, using brush No. 1. Brush across the grain using a force equal to that force you use when you wash your hands. Do not mix the brushes as the two liquids(No.1&2) neutralize each other. If SNAPPY begins to dry into the deck (sunny day) spray lightly with water. SNAPPY works only in a wet environment. Do not be afraid that your deck turns almost black in color. That indicates Snappy is working.
  • You now have 2 alternatives If you do not have aluminium in the area you can rinse away liquid No.1, with water. Before rinsing however, wait a few minutes so that Snappy can work deep down in the wood. If, however, you do have aluminium use alternative number 2. which is to apply liquid No.2. directly on top of liquid No1 without rinsing. This creates a neutral mixture which cannot effect aluminium when it is rinsed off at a later time. This mixture is also better for the environment.
  • The next step is to apply liquid No.2. Use exactly the same technique as used when applying liquid No.1. Almost immediately your deck will begin to lighten in color. Again wait a few minutes so the liquid can work deep down.
  • Lastly, using water, spray thoroughly. Make sure that no Snappy remains. It is best at this time to rinse the entire boat. If after drying an area has been missed, or does not look optimal, just repeat the process for just that area. If this be the case use alternative No.2, that is apply liquid No. 2 directly over No.1 without rinsing. These areas will blend together leaving no seams. Snappy Sealer applied, after the deck is dry, will preserve your deck the entire season.

      I'm an amateur wood butcher who has worked with many different woods but I'm new to boating and working with teak. Other boaters warned me about the hassles of preparing teak prior to varnishing. My teak, toerail, trim and louvered doors were a dark gray and I was concerned when it turned almost black while applying part I. My fears of were soon relieved when I applied part II, lightly scrubbed and rinsed with water. The teak went from dark brunette to blond as the accumulated grime floated away. After a few coats of varnish I have beautiful honey colored teak. Hint #1: Buy extra part II. You will use more part II than part I. I would suggest about a 2:1 ratio. Hint #2: Let the product do most of the work, only scrub lightly as the teak is very soft. Hint #3: I used two spray bottles to apply the product which I believe made it not only easier to apply but used less product. Wear adequate protective gear, especially goggles and respirator if you apply with a sprayer. This product is a strong chemical. While the first part that you apply is rather strong it is neutralized when part two is applied. I had a hole in a rubber glove that made things a bit uncomfortable. Overall, easy to use and does a great job.

      I received this product in apparently good condition in a sealed plastic bag, but at least one of the bottles leaked and contaminated both brushes as well as removing most of the printing on the bottles, making it questionable which bottle is part one.

            This product worked beautifully. My neighbor at the lake refinished teak swim platforms and they looked really great. The product was super easy to use and performed flawlessly.

                I have used this product before on a Teak patio set , and it always does an excellent job. I now just used this product on a couple of Brazillian Cherry wood Adirondack chairs. The chairs had turned a black / gray color. After using this product on Cherry wood , it brought back the original warm red luster of the wood. The chairs look BRAND NEW again. This product requires a bit of elbow greese , but does a fantastic job of restoring Cherry wood as well as Teak. HIGHLY , HIGHLY recommended.

                      This product works great, but you need to be careful not to get it on you. I read that you need more of Number 2 than 1 and they were right. I used one bottle of #1 and two of #2 and it worked out fine for a really bad teak bench that I sanded first. It takes more of the neutralizer than the actual cleaner. The result is very good and much better than I ever expected. It was a great lesson in restoring Teak as I am a sailor and expect to use it again on some boat restoration.

                                  This product works great for cleaning teak that is unfinished or teak oiled. End result is equal to days of sanding. It is not strong enough to remove Watco teak oil "finish."

                                  We use Snappy on our Lluan (sp)? porch floor and have used it for 16 years. I use a shop vac with it, and it does an amazing job. The floor looks like new. We had used it on the teak on our boat before selling the boat and buying an old farm.
