I know teak has natural oils that protects itself from the elements but it looks kinda dull and grey, I applied some paste wax on a small area and it looks lovely. Is it a good idea?

I think it would but also agree with Custard’s comments. Ours went black and grubby which is why I pressure washed it. Teak oil (as wax) has many different formulations ... I suspect using a product that was designed for marine use has merely bought extra time before it needs doing again. 12 months in and it still looks okay ... fingers crossed!Osvaldd":2lhxamhb said:@Blackswanwood are you saying teak oil would be better and last longer?
When you're dealing with indoor furniture the moisture content of the wood and the finish will almost certainly be below 12%, where as outdoors it'll probably be around 15-20%. That means mould will survive outdoors but not indoors.Osvaldd":3ac2fixa said:I'm still confused.
