TotalBoat Teak Cleaner is a two-part system that thoroughly cleans and restores the natural golden color and beautiful grain of your boat's teak deck and other teak surfaces. Part A removes sealers, graying, and weathering, and lifts dirt, stains, salt, and mildew. Part B neutralizes Part A and brightens the teak. Kit includes 1 Quart Part A and 1 Quart Part B.
Wet the teak surface to be cleaned. While the surface is wet, apply TotalBoat Teak Cleaner Part A to the teak, disperse the solution and scrub lightly across the grain with a soft-bristle brush or Scotch-Brite pad. The teak will darken with residue that is cleaned from the wood. Never scrub in the direction of the grain, as doing so will remove wood fiber. Rinse thoroughly with water and continue scrubbing lightly across the grain, removing most of the residue. Also, rinse clean any brush or pad used to scrub teak.
While still wet with fresh water, apply Part B, using the brush or pad to disperse and scrub lightly across the grain. The teak will lose the dark brown color and start to lighten. Rinse Part B off thoroughly with fresh water.
Allow teak to dry to a light, golden color, at least 24-48 hours. Do not attempt to seal, oil, or varnish during this period.
The cleaning process may raise the outer grains. If so, a light sanding will take the grains back down. If persistent stains remain after cleaning, perform cleaning process again.
Caution: Do not allow TotalBoat Teak Cleaner to come into contact with painted surfaces or aluminum surfaces. Mask around the area to be cleaned to prevent staining of surrounding areas.
If Part A gets onto fiberglass or gelcoat, neutralize with Part B to avoid damage or staining. Do not leave Part B on an caulking or seams for more than 5 minutes without neutralizing with Part B.

My boyfriend and I are in the process of restoring a 2006 wooden sailboat. As you can imagine - there is lots of teak. We followed the directions and used part A + B cleaner before oiling the teak and we couldn't believe how well it shined up. It looks brand new now - and not to mention the process was super easy. It was so satisfying to watch all the dirt and grime come up after years of sitting on the hard.

I tried this product on my neglected teak grating deck and some mahogany coaming. The teak came out okay, but the mahogany looked blotchy after using this product. I ended up going back and sanding everything anyway. If you teak is in fair shape, this is probably worth the money, but I would not use it on anything else.

Have a neglected 27 year old teak deck that was never cleaned. Tried Total Boat teak cleaner and couldn't believe how it lifted the dirt and grime out of the teak. Results way beyond expectations and very easy to use. Wouldn't use anything else.

I've tried a few other of these two-part cleaner/brighteners and none come close to the ease-of-use and fast results of Total Boat. Is not expensive, about the same cost of other brands, but the results are superior especially on teak. I also used this on some nearly-black mast hoops and with a bit of listed oil look almost new. The only downside is that it can make a mess of your deck if you aren't careful.

I used this product to clean out a new sealer on my toe rail that I was unsatisfied with. Total boat cleaner did a great job taking the sealer off of the teak so I could come back with my original Awlgrip products.

I have use this on two sets of outdoor teak patio furniture. The results were amazing. The first set I did was in really bad shape after being outside for over 23 years in sun and snow and ice. The results were fantastic. It looked like new. I thought of throwing it away and now I'm so happy I didn't. I will use this again to keep it looking nice for many years to come.

I've used another teak cleaner for years. After using this teak cleaner,it's what I'll use from now on. Easy to apply with foam brush and hose off with a scotch brite pad. Great results.

My teak patio dining table, chairs and park bench are about 15 years old. I had used teak oil to refresh the surfaces twice, always with fair results. If you;ve done that too, you know that it doesn;t last long and provides a disappointed color. I have also tried another teak cleaner system but again, disappointing results. The two step process is easy. The kit comes with stirrers and a filter strainer, two containers and of course the quarts of A and B solutions. Frequently rinse the brush you use for cleaning, it will get clogged with grime and once cleaned you just work until done. I had about 50 sqft of surface to clean and only used about 6 oz of each product. When complete, the teak showed no signs of the streaking, discoloration or silver. Just clean (raw) teak. I did finish with the Teak Deck Sealer. It enhanced the depth of color and I'm a very happy customer.

This worked great and I followed the directions in you video, which was super awesome. The only thing the video should emphasize is clean it first with your scrub brush and water, then use the part a and b...def an important step. Also did it outside in the rain...which is best as it just does not dry. Also do in parts...like the video. The outcome was amazing! I wish I could post pre and post. Everyone was super impressed! Thank you! Don't try to do too much surface at once. My only question: WHAT TYPE OF SPONGE did you use in the video since my basic kitchen sponge completely dissolved!
