Re: [Harp-L] disinfecting harps

I've been using this hands free cleaner that uses soundwaves, hot h20, and vinegar for a couple of years and it works great. Buy from me or an industrial shop.

Since I'd also be going through them for tuning, gapping, and general cleaning, I take each of them fully apart for immersion, then wipe 'em dry, thus there's little or no residual moisture upon re-assembly.
