How to Remove Excess Teak Oil

Mel Frank

When polishing and restoring moisture to teak furniture, you can sometimes go overboard with the teak oil application, or even spill some of the oil accidentally. If the oil is left on the furniture, not only does it create an unattractive film of residue, but when a person sits onto the furniture, the oil can distribute onto the person's clothing. Luckily, removing the excess teak oil is an easy procedure.

Removing excess teak oil is easy.
  1. Rub firmly over the excess teak oil with a soft, lint-free cloth.

  2. Lightly moisten a fresh lint-free cleaning cloth with mineral spirits. The mineral spirits will remove the oil without harming the teak.

  3. Rub the cloth gently over the surface. Repeat as needed until all excess teal oil is removed.
