Re: [Harp-L] Basics of harp cleaning

For god's sakes don't use Q tips. You'll regret it (although I'm sure somebody uses them) and I'd be nervous about fibers on the stick, too. Reeds don't like it when those cotton fibers get stuck in the slot. Just rinse it out, tap it and out and you're done. You shouldn't be playing with a dirty mouth anyway, so all the gunk will be saliva. Saliva dissolves easy. Just rinse it out, tap it out, air dry.

Hello Harp Lovers,
Did some research/reading but still need basics.

My harp seems to get a film inside the square holes. So I try to
gently scrape (ouch) them out. I always rinse before playing. I always
whack the moisture out when done.

1. What tools do you use = Qtips, Qtip wooden stick, etc??
2. Materials = water, Windex ?????
3. At what point do you disassemble for cleaning purposes?
