Answer 1#: This is a common occurrence and is called 'blooming'. One sure way is to soak cotton wool in methylated spirits (Rubbing Alcohol in the US) and place over the blooming. It draws the moisture out as it evaporates. On the underside of your units you're going to have to hold the cotton pad in place while it dries out. -- Alan -English Bob

Answer 2#: Have you tried Teak Oil -- Anon
