RE: Damaged interior solid teak panels

Oxalic acid is the usual bleaching agent to lighten the wood. You will have to experiment a bit to get the lightening effect you want. Several applications of a weak mix and inspection between is better than a strong soloution. Use some soapy water or baking soda to neutralize. And don't forget to use eye protection and gloves.

Usually available from drug stores in crystal form.
