Care For Your Pine Needle Basket Care for your pine needle basket is easy. You should treat it as you would a fine piece of clear wooden furniture. Use a good furniture polish (available at most reputable Antique Stores), Linseed Oil, Neat’s-Foot Oil, or softened bees wax and polish with a soft lint free cloth (do not use bath towles or terry cloth). You may use a damp cloth to remove dust or dirt, just not dripping wet, them be sure to use Linseed Oil or Neat's-Foot Oil immediately after. If there are any snags when polishing the basket, this is from the ends of the pine needles. You can just snap off the offending point (they are single and small). Be careful when polishing so that you do not poke a finger on any pine needle tips. The tips will tend to break off under the skin and should be treated just like you would a sliver of wood, when removing. The baskets are made of all natural products, except the artificial sinew (thread). Obsidian arrow heads are SHARP and should be treated accordingly. The natural stones may change color when oiled/polished. Bone beads may turn odd colors when oiled/polished. All baskets are treated with Neats-Foot Oil before sale. FEATHERS WILL BE RUINED IF OILED. You should not let your basket accumulate dust as it will deteriorate the basket. Do not WET your basket. Do not WASH your basket, especially in water. Do not use Murphy’s Oil Soap on your basket. Do not use any Old English products on your basket. Do not use SPRAY furniture polish on your basket. Do not use alcohol on your basket. Do not use anything on your basket that you would not use on your fine and/or antique wooden furniture. I Do Not recommend using shellac as it does not allow the basket to breath or absorbe wax/oil and the basket will dry out and crack and/or break.
