  1. Hi, I’m looking for advice on caring for my grandmother’s dining room chairs which have cane seats. I live in the Colorado Rockies, where it’s much drier than Wisconsin, where she lived. She replaced the cane about 10 years ago, but the chairs had very little use. (They’re my daily use dining chairs.) Most websites recommend treating with lemon oil, but I’m really hoping you can recommend a brand or two (I’m happy to buy via amazon!) How often should I treat them? I think the air here is about 6% humidity, but I have a whole home humidifier to try to keep the house to around 30%. Thank you for any advice you can lend!

    1. Hi Kristin,

      Although your question has nothing to do with the topic of this blog post on Cane & Basket Supplies, I’ll go ahead and post the answer to your question about caring for your grandmother’s cane chair anyway since it might help others with the same question! Cane seats that are well cared for can and do last more than 25 years, so it’s to your advantage to know how to treat them and I’ve made a list of techniques to use on the “How-to Care for Your Cane Furniture” page! Thanks for asking Kristin!
