Jane just sent us a message wondering how to clean her Costa Rican chair. (Her email address didn't work so we will post it here.)
Clean your Costa Rican style chair by removing the seat section from the wooden dowel. Tie the rope struts with string to keep them from tangling. Wash by hand with a mild soap and cool water. Hang up to dry in the sun perhaps spreading out the chair to dry faster. Please don't use bleach as it will weaken the ropes and perhaps cause a mishap. :)
Let us know if you have any questions.
