What do you clean your cabin sole with?

We live aboard and are cruising the eastern caribbean this winter. We run a small shop vac off the inverter to vacuum the interior of the boat periodically but Im looking for a good cleaner for the teak and holly cabinsole. Ours is not in the best of shape varnish wise but its not terribly dirty either. Would vinigar be a good choice? Of so in what quantity?

Thanks,

We wipe it down with an orange oil cleaner. Takes the dirt up and smells good while leaving a nice shine. It is slick until it soaks in...we use this on all inside teak a few times a year.

I use vinegar diluted in warm water and a towel to wipe all the wood surfaces. Orange or Lemon oil will live a residue that I don't like.

Oh, about 1 cup to a gallon of warm water.
