It’s sometime amazing to find out how much we DON”T know. You just taught me something I didn’t know and I Sincerely thank you for that. You and Rob, from ONTARIO Canada who might live down the street from me …LOL…. are Totally right on the use of Tung Oil on a Humidor!!

I must state that I have never used Tung Oil on anything but am considering it for a “Rustic” Bench in my front hall. Probably because I’m getting tired of Staining & Slapping Urethane on everything ..LOL…

I think I’ll do as you suggest and Google Tung Oil as I understand there is some concern about using it on any type of food item. I also understand from the info on Lee Valley that there is Tung Oil and there is Tung Oil depending on what type of wood and what Country it came from.

You’re right on as far as mislabeled Products!! It IS something we should all be concerned about. There are LOTS of them out there and the big question is …WHY! I think we all know a probable answer to that question.

A friend told me to Google TEFLON, I did. Apparently 98% of the American Public can thank DuPont and the US Government (No insult intended, it’s just as BAD up here.) for depositing a Not Very Friendly, Cumulative, Unremovable, Chemical in ALL of our Bodies and they’ve known about it since about the mid 50’s. That REALLY Urinates me off!!

Thank you both for your input and another Learning experience for me.
