Scratches in interior teak

I want to fix light scratches in the teak floor, is there an easy way to do this?

Depends how it is finished and how deep the scratch is.

I Suspect recoating the floor is what you need. Polishing with 3M Finesse It II will remove real light scratches. But I'm talking like scratches on a guitar body....

You can hide a bit but probably not restore.

Re: Scratches in interior teak

It's likely just teak veneer, and not solid teak.

Photos might help.

I have found that furniture polish hides the scratches but they eventually show up again.
