Two-Part Teak Cleaners

Testers gauge two-part teak cleaners to see how they match up against each other and against one-part teak cleaners.

Whether itís wood flooring or boat decks youíre dealing with, cleaning teak presents special challenges. In March 2008, we tested one-part teak cleaners to see which ones cleaned teak decks without being too harsh on the wood, the applicator, or environment. In this report, Practical Sailor follows up with an evaluation of two-part cleaners and how they compare to one another and to the top pick from the test of one-part solutions for cleaning teak. Testers applied five two-part cleaners for this test. Four of these were liquids: Amazonís Quicki-II Teak Cleaner, Nautical Ease Teak Cleaner and Brightener, West Marineís Teak Cleaner and Brightener, and TE-KA Teak Wood Cleaner by Marinetex. Tip Top Teak combines liquid and granular powder parts. Two-part cleaners were compared to Iosso one-part teak cleaner.
