When exposed to the elements, the factory applied finish will wear away after approximately one or two seasons of use. Once this occurs, and the unfinished teak is exposed, the furniture will weather naturally and acquire the gray patina that is the characteristic of untreated teak. It is important to note that the finish will not necessarily wear away in a perfectly even fashion during the weathering process.
Wipe down the furniture using warm water and a soft cloth. For moderate cleaning, add 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap to 1 quart of warm water, and wipe with a soft cloth. Rinse the table using a low hose pressure to remove any extra soap.
We recommend storing in a dry, unheated garage or shed, or beneath a breathable furniture cover.
Furniture covers should be cleaned regularly before environmental deposits (dirt, etc.) are allowed to accumulate and become embedded in the fabric. We recommend spot cleaning furniture covers. Start by brushing off any loose dirt/debris, then clean using a sponge, fresh water, and mild soap.
