I purchased a great teak patio set (large table and six substantial folding chairs) at Costco recently, and since it sits by our pool, we decided to oil it rather than let it just get grey with time. Also, we were worried about food stains to the table.
I’ve purchased a couple of quarts of Watco “Teak Oil” and we’re really happy with the way it makes the teak look.
Question: Does anyone know if what I’m buying is really just boiled linseed oil?
That’s what it sort of looks like, and if this is the case, I can sure save some significant $$ by just using that. Alternatively, is there something special about “teak” oil that I’d need to consider if I’m formulating my own?
Many thanks for your collective advice…. –Ken
