Product Details

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.

Info & Guides
Application

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 48-72 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.

Worth the trouble instead of just oiling... clean then oiling looks awesome!

Teak Cleaner
By Lou from Rhinebeck New York

Verified Purchase

Have new Teak furniture that I sealed with Teak Sealer. It worked well but by the end of the summer was getting dark stained areas in some of the wood. I used this cleaner and it worked very well. Now have to re-seal the teak next spring. Wish there was a more permanent way to prevent stains but this works great in removing them and is very easy to use.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I will buy this product again to finish my sailboat deck.
By KH from Bellingham, Wa

Verified Purchase

I used this to clean my dirty, mildewed and too gray teak boat deck. Part A turned the wood very dark, almost black and with a scotch brite pad removed the debris. Part B neutralized Part A and brightened the teak. Finished with Semco Natural sealer-used a foam brush (watch out for drips) and wiped with a clean rag. Beautiful!!

'Before' at top and end result below. Very happy with results!

My Teak Looks Brand New!
By Sailing Nereus from Kennebunkport, Maine

Verified Purchase

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.

Final result after part B. Incredible. The teak looks brand new! Now time for some oil.

Good, but not amazing
By EHT from Louisiana

Verified Purchase

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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Amazing Results
By Paul from CT

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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Incredible results
By Uncle Snowball from North of Boston

Verified Purchase

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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I used these products to clean my toe rail
By TJ from Bentonville Arkansas

Verified Purchase

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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I love this product
By Very happy from Van Nuys

Verified Purchase

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.

After step 1, cleaning
After step 2, lightening.
This is the second set after it was dry.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
