Fix for Natural Teak Tabletop Discolored by Furniture Polish?

Good Questions

Q: My cleaning lady used wood furniture polish (something like Pledge) on my natural teak dining table, and as you can tell by the picture it's discolored. I'm considering sanding the table or spraying the entire table with the polish so that it will be the same color, but I really have no idea what to do and I don't want to make it worse. Any suggestions on how to fix this or make it less noticeable?

This is the table from Crate & Barrel.
