Teak Protector is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job but messy I was unsure of whether to use a commercial Teak Oil or to use the recommended Teak Protector from Frontgate for the Frontgate Teak bathroom shower caddy I purchased. A friend said I should use a clear teak protector and avoid an artificial stain. So I assumed this is what the Frontgate product would be. I also assumed that the product, described as water soluble, would be easy to apply and easy to clean. My other trepidation was how to apply the product, and what tool to use. When the product arrived, it came with a thick paper cloth attached to the bottle but only one cloth. I read the directions on the back and applied some of the liquid to the cloth and then rubbed the cloth on the teak product. The product was a brown color that appeared on the cloth but applied on the wood as a yellow brown. The color of the product did seem to enhance the color of the teak shower caddy which arrived in a less than glorious teak color. Call it teak grabbed from the jungle and carved out but not Danish beautiful. So the product did add some value, and I applied two coats to the shower caddy, waiting at least 30 minutes in between. As I was applying the product, the product was starting to get on my hands and fingers since I had to add lots of product to the cloth to try to coat the hard to reach areas of the shower caddy, where the wood is just centimeters from the metal ribs. I tried to wash off the product from my hands using soap and water between the coats, and a little came off but not very much. Then, after the second coat, I again tried to wash my hands with more vigor but no luck. So I had stained hands for 6 days that now has all but come off except for my fingernails. If you're reading this and wondering why I didn't use this or that product to clean my hands, that's because I have never done this before and not all of us are familiar with stain application and clean up. I just naively thought that a water soluble product would wash off my hands. I disposed of the paper cloth and now I have to find something else to use when I reapply the protector, according to the directions, once a year. In terms of the footprint where I applied the stain to the shower caddy, there was almost no mess. I used some newspaper on the floor of the garage and just sat on a stool and applied the protector. It does have a small nozzle-like opening that means all of the liquid won't spill everywhere if you were to knock over the bottle. So I won't know how effective the protector product will be until it has whethered many months of water exposure in the shower. At least now, you the reader, will have an idea of what it is like to use the product.

re Teak Protector Does this product have a limited shelf life? Does it become ineffective at some time? If so, when??
