I would maybe try something like Mequire's #44 and a toothbrush.

I have removed varnish from non-skid by first putting an ice cube over the spot for a few minutes. Then use a small knife or razor blade to carefully pry up the drip. Freezing the drip first seems to make it brittle.

Use 1-step teak cleaner, such as Amazon brand. Removes varnish drips like a charm.

Most people don't know that most teak oils contain about 10% varnish, and the cleaners cut this. Give it a little time to work, and may take more than 1 application.
