Subject: RE: Help: How to clean/restore a Swannee Whistle?
The safest cleaning method is warm soapy water and dry thoroughly. The cotton on the stopper is just to give an airtight joint. Be careful not to damage the mouthpiece. If the brass still needs cleaning after washing,try to use something that will not wear it away.(I would leave it to polish with use.
