TLC for Teak Update

About a week ago, I blogged about an Apartment Therapy post I found, outlining how to care for teak.  I did tackle my newfound vintage teak chair.  Although the before and after are pretty identical, I feel good knowing that my teak piece will look good longer if I care for it properly. 

One tip I learned from the super mangled bottle of teak oil I have: apply the teak oil with the direction of the grain.  Don't use circular motions or go against the grain.

Is it just me, or do my supplies look
exceptionally ratty?
