Teak is often a preferred choice for making wooden furniture as its natural oils give protection against pests and termites. Taking care of teak wood furniture is also very easy and simple.  Also teak grows in a hot and humid environment which makes it a very durable material.

In order to take care of the teak furniture you need to wash it once in a year so that you could preserve its natural color. You can use water and mild detergent to clean off the dust and the pollen. But prevent washing it with high pressure water since it can damage your furniture. Teak wood furniture particularly needs care and maintenance due to the large content of natural oils that is present in the teak wood.  Hence treating the furniture with preservatives, oils, wood sprays etc. are very essential.

If you want your teak furniture to look shiny then you could apply teak oil to cover up the small cracks on the wood surface. However the furniture needs to be cleaned before application of teak oil.
