Customer Questions & Answers

Can this product be used on hardwood furniture indoors that have an old varnish finish that needs refreshing?

Asked by: jenkint
It all depends on your preparation and the finish you are trying to remove. You can try one of the methylene chloride based strippers - the thin liquid kind you pour in a pan and scrub the piece with steel wool. The important thing is to get the old finish off - and for my project I did not want to raise the grain or have to sand the wood. I redid an antique grand piano this way. The finish had turned almost black. Beneath that was beautiful mahogany with a lovely patina. I used an oil finish - I believe it was the tung oil product. Newer finishes my be more resistant to the chemicals in the strippers. Therefore your mileage may vary.

How will this product work on a treated wood deck?

Asked by: Dave
This is the best teak oil I have ever used for furniture! I would NOT recommend it for a deck, or at least an ipe deck, as it didn't penetrate and remained tacky. I had to remove it with xylene.

Can you use teak oil on Wood cutting boards and is it food safety after trying?

Asked by: Csunbe80
Rust-Oleum Watco Teak Oil is not recommended for use on surfaces that have direct contact with food or beverage. Instead, check out Rust-Oleum Watco Butcher Block Oil which is great for providing a food safe finish to wood surfaces!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasts Surprisingly Long! I bought a Teak Patio Glider in 1998, and after 4 years on the patio, it turned a light gray color. I went to Home Depot to look for a stain to rejunivate it, and found the Watco Teak Oil, so figured it might be the finish of choice for Teak. I used 1/2 quart to saturate the glider, and it lasted till 2013. After pressure washing this year, the color had finally lightened up enough to warrent another treatment, and I used the remaining 1/2 quart, which made the glider look just like new again. Lasted both on the glide and on the shelf for 11 years. Amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great easy to apply finish for items that do not need a lot of protection I do a lot of woodworking and my favorite part of the process is finishing. First let me start out by saying this is an oil/varnish blend (it actually contains no teak oil at all, but that's ok). The claims of "protects from within" are a little exaggerated. The strength of a finish is in it's build. To fully protect wood from abrasion and liquids, you need to build a film. This product does not do that. As the surface wears, so will the finish. With that said, oil/varnish blends have a few fantastic uses. One is for occasional use items or items that will not be subject to a lot of wear and tear like boxes. Another is for applications where the finish takes so much abuse that semi-frequent reapplication is required - such as outdoor furniture. The latter is where this product is awesome. It is quite a bit glossier than it's Danish Oil cousin, but can either be polished up to a really high gloss, or knocked down to a satin sheen easily. Application is as simple as it gets. Follow the instructions on the can. I make a lot of custom wooden razor stands that have to put up with the tough climate of the bathroom and will get wet often. With quarterly reapplication, this product holds up really well. Unlike many film building finishes , no sanding or stripping is required to give the piece a gentle refresh. Another great use for this piece is preserving the color of unique exotic species. Woods like purpleheart. padauk, yellowheart, bloodwood, and redheart all lose their vibrant color tones when exposed to UV. This has a UV inhibitor. It can be used under a protective film building finish (like polyurethane, acrylics/waterborne finishes, shellac, and some lacquers) after it has fully cured for about a week. This is a great product that I will continue to use. I get the same results from this as I do from my custom tung/BLO/Spar varnish blend, but I don't have to mix anything and this has a MUCH longer shelf life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good I applied this product to my wood external front doors (each is very fancy w/lots of details). These doors (French) are facing the Northeast (30 degrees) with an above porch blocking most of the direct sun. After sanding (220 grit) and wire brushing the 10 years old (I should have resurface at year 6) cracked-up and hazy Polyurethane off, I brushed on the Teak Oil and rugged it in with a rag. 24 hours later, using the same method, I applied the 2nd and then 3rd coats. Each coating took 20 minutes to apply. The wood absorbed the oil like a sponge, the doors look great, and you can truly see the grains in the wood. I’ll see how long it lasts; nonetheless, I rather spread oil once a year than sand/wire brush my front doors every 6 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use - looks great - long lasting lasts 2-3 times longer than traditional teak oil - protects and seals the wood but does not make the surface glossy.

I thought the wood looked good before but was astounded once I applied the teak oil. It was very easy to apply. Be careful of any balled up rags with the oil on it after you are completed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good weatherproofing The teak oil was easy to apply and gave a smooth finish to my outdoor furniture. Furniture looks as good as the first day I applied it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST FINISH for Padauk! Padauk wood presents a special challenge to guitar builders in keeping that beautiful orange-red color you see after it is freshly cut and/or sanded. I tried a few different finishes that didn't work, the wood wants to turn dark purple or black when most finishes are applied, or they will soon from UV exposure. Then I tried Watco Teak Oil. It sounded like it might be just what I was looking for and so far, it is. A high gloss finish isn't important to me if it means losing the color of the wood. This is a satin "in-the-wood" finish like other Watco products, so you want to sand the wood very smooth to the touch with high quality finishing sandpaper. Pretty similar to their Danish Oil products, without the stain. It really makes the grain pop and only slightly darkens the Padauk wood. It's been 6 weeks and hasn't changed a bit. They say it has high UV protection too. It produces a satin finish so if you want something glossy this isn't it. Nice thing is, if the wood does darken, it's no big deal to just sand off the surface and shoot a little more Teak Oil to it.
