    It looks great! Is it necessary to use the first application of Teak renewal stuff, before sanding the crusty finish?

    Unless your teak is rough, you shouldn't need to sand. But if it is rough, it's best to clean first and then sand, after it's thoroughly dry. Then apply oil.

    The pre cleaned teak could gunk up your sandpaper.
