So does anyone want to try and summarize this thread?

If you want to leave your teak au natural, what is the best product and process by consensus?

A link to a product description page for Church & Dwight’s Parsons’ Sudsy Ammonia on states that it is no longer available and future availability is unknown. A single five-star review on, as of 2016, states that Sudsy Ammonia is the best household cleaner, cleans a number of surfaces, including floors and countertops, and does not leave any residue. Other ammonia products from the same brand, such as Arm & Hammer’s Parsons’ lemon-scented Ammonia All-Purpose Cleaner, are also unavailable on
Additionally, a pictorial for making homemade sudsy ammonia is available on WikiHow. The three-ingredient mixture of water, concentrated ammonia and dishwashing liquid soap, is all that’s needed to make sudsy, or soapy, ammonia cleaner. Refer to the specific instructions for safety precautions. Mold Solutions

Clean it, sand it smooth and wash before it get to dirty with as mild a product as you can while trying to scrub across the grain as much as possible.

I good wash/scrub with clean salt water from time to to time is also very good for your teak.

As to what to wash it with, powdered Tide with bleach, sudsy ammonia, oxalic acid, mild powdered teak cleaners, etc. all work well.

On our teak decks I've been using Sea Shields teak cleaner followed by their brightener. Both work fantastic and are very mild.

You can use their brightener in you bare feet with no burning feeling. Something you can't say about most brighteners/bleaches.
