Just wondering if anyone knows how to get chocolate marks/stains out a teak deck without having to 2 part the entire deck again?

K2r-dry cleaning spray works on most of the spots as on deck as on carpets. Spray it over the spot when dry brush it away then wash it off with water if needed.. Sometime need to be repeated twice or more..

Use k2R, if that doesnt work, there is this teak cleaner called "atomic" teak cleaner" its an organic none acid cleaner and it doesnt thin your teak.  it doesnt eat the teak, it works great.

We leave cans of aerosol carpet cleaner in all of the washdown lockers, if you spray it on immediately and wipe it clean after about it 2 or 3 minutes it pulls oils, grease and chocolate stains out of the deck immediately. I need to check which spray it is though, but its the type that foams up.

Carpet cleaner is sodium  dodecylbenesulfonate.  

 Sailors skip the rusty spray cans and use salt.   Salt mixed with vinegar and water in an empty spray bottle cleans teak  stains nicely.  Bird poop, dried flying fish, blown lunch...  

 Use a soft scrub brush or scotch bright pad.  Let the sun whiten the teak. 

Take the money saved on rusty spray cans and invest it in Beer.

  Store this bonus beer in all deck lockers in place of the rusty cans.  Always chill beer before consuming.
