Caring for Your Cane

If your cane gets a scratch on it, you can lightly scuff the area around the scratch with a high grit (220+) sandpaper, steel wool or scrubbing pad. Then you can spray or brush on a coat of spar urethane. If your cane has an oil finish, you can use a rag or brush to apply another coat of oil. I use an exterior oil such as Bush, Teak or Danish Oil.

Dents in your cane can be raised by using water and a clothes iron. Put some water on the dent and let it soak in for a while. Place a piece of wax paper over the dent and iron it. The heat will cause the water to expand and lift the dent.
