I needed to make some sandwiches for a class. The instructor wanted us to spray baste. I usually do this outside, but it was 15 degrees. I covered my teak dining room table with newspaper, but I got some overspray on the table. I thought that spray basting was supposed to wash out with soap and water, but this didn't remove it from the table. I also tried the teak cleaner I had, and this just seemed to smear it. I think it will wear off eventually, but I'd like to clean it, or should i just add batting, backing and quilt it?

I think some of the Orange based cleaners might cut the adhesive from the spray. Also the citrus oil should be good for the table. OR - like you said you could just baste it and quilt it-LOL! Good luck with the clean-up!!

I use baby oil (prefer the gel) to remove sticky labels from bottles. I don't know if it would work on basting spray or if it would harm your table, but if all else fails, you could try just a small amount.

Ouch - I hope it all comes off. I'd try the baby oil or a furniture polish oil - teak needs oiling every now and then anyway, doesn't it?

My dining room table is currently finished in vintage dust... I should get out the furniture oil, myself. :?

How about some goo gone? It works great on labels tape or any stick substance and isn't harmful

For future reference, I used goo gone. Put a tiny amount on a paper towel, then rubbed the area. Removed residual oil with another paper towel. Didn't seem to affect (effect? any grammar police out there?) the teak at all.
