Thread Name: Cleaning a Harmonica
Subject: RE: Cleaning a Harmonica
Is that a dig at my playing ,Liz? I'll have you know that I've played in front of the Duke of York, the Duke of Edinburgh and other famous pubs!
Yes I've got one of those double-sided Hohners somewhere Bob, and I wouldn't like to dive into one. The woodwork is quite delicate and that is where the problem is. Any serious soaking to get rid of the stench of Old Spice could easily warp the body. It's probably going to take time for the smell to go away.
But as this has also turned into a general thread on harmonica hygene it useful to keep all these tips together.
