    Hey there, I just thought I would drop you a line to thank you for the tip on cleaning old teak. We tried your recipe on our teak today and it works marvellously. I never imagined it would work THAT good. Thanks very much!

    Hey great, thanks for the info. I was looking around me wondering how I was going to renew the teak in my boat. It's a 30 year old boat with an interior that was never completely finished. There is quite a bit of nice teak. But with the difficulty in finding teak, not to mention the cost of it, I decided that where I need solid teak, I would re-use the original and where possible, I would use plywood backed mahogany veneer with a teak finish. It's working out well so far but the biggest challenge would be to match the new with the old. Now it loos like you may have given me the answer and for that I thank you very kindly.
    I also have a deck to repaint but have decided to use kiwi grip. I hope to get that done this summer or my deck could end up with moisture issues.
    Better go now, much work to do.

    Ciao for Nao!

    It wasnt hard...just messy....the mixture pulls all the crap right out of the teak...you definitely need to have a wet dry vac on hand. My only problem was having enough ventilation in the cabin being it rained the entire time i was doing it. I wanted to get it done because the upholsterer is coming this week. Ive done many things myself....ripped out all the carpeting....did all the sewing projects...the teak....i installed all new led cabin and navigation lights but also had the electrician rewiring everything....hadthe bottom paint and hull done professionally....i did the nonskid...i tried doing the topside paint with the rolling and tipping method and i was just not happy with it....so i talked to Chad....who painted my boat and he said you just cant compare rolling and tipping a one part paint to spraying with a two part like awlgrip....then he told me if i would prep the topside he would do the whole thing for me sprayed with awlgrip for $300 bucks!!!

    So how tough was the teak resto using h20/ammonia/tide? Congrats on the resto, are you doing it all on your own?
