the wood may not have been cured properly.
1. try wiping the table with vinegar and lemon juice. 2 table spoon each is enough.
2. if above does not work, apply a coat of varnish if you have the time and patience.
Otherwise may have to donate to Salvation Army.

All the best.

If the vinegar mixture doesn't work, try tea tree oil or palmarosa oil. http://www.ehow.com/how_4549129_make-ec ... leach.html

I had similar problem and as of today (about 4 mths), no mould/fungus has appeared on my teak bedside table.

Good luck.

Anywhere which sells essential oils or aromatherapy. But try the vinegar mixture as suggested; it's cheaper, works as well most of the time. Also, helps if you put your table near where it's sunny & less humid.
