Teak Cleaners

I recently read your article on two-part teak cleaners (May 2010), and the timing was perfect as I was about to undertake that very job on my 43-foot Slocum. I needed to clean the toerail and the rubrail, which had never seen varnish. I used the West Marine Heavy-Duty product, which you recommended, and followed the instruction to the letter. It was very easy to work with, less caustic then other solutions, and did wonderful job.

Reader Edward Haran used West Marine’s Heavy-Duty cleaner to rejuvenate the weathered teak toerail on his Slocum 43, Chotto.
