Unhappy Teak veneer chairs with white stains

I have 8 teak veneer chairs that I dearly love. They have been oiled with lemon oil over the years and are in great shape except for a white stain/film that is now appearing on the majority of them. It seems to be appearing where a person generates the most heat, like in the middle of their back or in the center of the seat. Is this some sort of salt stain from perspiration or something from the lemon oil? How do I get it off?

Take a piece of #0000 superfine steel wool and a little lemon oil and rub in direction of grain to remove moisture marks. When applying lemon oil, always buff off any excess. There is no need to oil the furniture every week, but if you reserve the lemon oil rag and buff to dust and remove body salts and oils, you may be able to minimize the white stains.

Thank you. I will try it and let you know what happens. I only oil the chairs about once every 5 years.
