Barrettine Teak Oil is also available in a handy Teak Oil Spray, perfect for regular maintenance.

Areas to be treated should be clean, dry and free from traces of dust, dirt, grease, wax and silicone.

Exterior Wood

Bare or Untreated Wood

  1. Clean the wood to be oiled with a stiff broom or brush to remove all traces of surface dirt and debris
  2. For areas affected by mould, algae or moss, or to restore the colour of areas that have turned grey or silver over time, use a suitable wood cleaner / restorer
  3. Treat with a suitable exterior wood preservative for the best protection
  4. If possible, preserve all sides including end grain prior to installation
  5. Wipe down new wood with Meths such as Barrettine Methylated Spirits and allow to dry

Previously Finished Wood

Old coating type finishes such as paints, varnishes and varnish type stains must be fully removed back to bare wood before oiling. Depending on the condition and type of finish, it may require more than one attempt to fully remove the old coating.

  1. Ensure that all 'coating' type finishes have been fully removed to expose bare wood by either jet washing or using a dedicated paint stripper / remover
  2. Old oiled finishes should be lightly sanded or cleaned thoroughly with white spirit
  3. Once the old finish has been completely removed / cleaned, refer to the preparation instructions for bare or untreated wood above

Interior Wood

  1. Existing oiled surfaces can be lightly cleaned if required with a dedicated wood cleaner
  2. Pre-existing varnishes and sealers must be completely removed via sanding or using a suitable Product Stripper / Remover
  3. Use an appropriate Wood Filler if repairs are required before oiling

Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

  1. Apply Barrettine Teak Oil thinly and evenly with a soft, lint-free cloth or a brush
  2. Work the oil into the wood, finishing off in the direction of the wood grain
  3. Remove any excess oil from the surface of the wood after 15 minutes
  4. Allow to dry for 24 hours between coats
  5. Apply additional coats as required, as above

Please Note: Barrettine state that Teak Oil is not recommended for use on Oak. This said however many of our customers have used Teak Oil on Oak and have been happy with the results.

Additional coats of Barrettine Teak Oil can be applied as and when the finish starts to look tired, worn or starts to lose its water resistance. Simply, clean the surface first to remove any traces of dust and dirt then apply a fresh coat of Teak Oil as per the application instructions above.

Superb penetration by Martin Pilcher

This easily matches more expensive and refined products. The absorption on hardwood is impressive and it brings out the grain beautifully.

Have put two-three coats on my outdoor garden furniture - I await results in a year or two's time! by Tim Gray

Seems fine - very easy to apply. Problem with pouring oil from the 5-ltr tin - it went everywhere! Does not seem to be a way of pouring it into a jar without spillage, and running down the side of the tin. Lovely smell, though!

Much thinner than other teak oils by David Gowing

I have used this product on some hardwood gates. It was very thin, which made it easy to apply, but I am concerned that it has not given such a robust surface coating as the previous products I have used on the same gates, so I wait to see whether it is as successful as the others at keeping out the winter wet. Jury is still out!

Very good product, and is very good for outside furniture Can be applied with brush or cloth and gives a great finish by Mr S Howlett

To early too give any information regarding durability, as I have only just used it, but the heavy weather we have recently had, seems to have little impact on the furniture finish.

Seems like a good product for the price by I Longworth

We use it on teak loungers that spend the winter outside. After powerwashing, they seem to need two coats and that lasts until next year.
