    Acids and bases are chemically active because they have a surplus of positive or negative ions. Either can work as a cleaning solution, but in the case of a musical instrument a base such as detergent or Simple Green is most effective at dissolving oily or greasy residue, while an acid such as vinegar will have more ability to loosen mineral deposits.

    If you mix an acid and base they will neutralize each other (positive & negative ions combine) and each will be rendered less effective.

    well, at least the dude -- explained why he takes his wedding ring off to play the trumpet also --(it scratches the horn) ---- I was wondering, seeing that is like 25 ish, why he would take the wedding band off during community band ---- where the average age is like 63 or something!!!! --- I was wondering if he was trying to hit on the 80 year old lady that sits with us in the 3rd trumpet section ---- BOY DO I FEEL SILLY NOW, I was getting jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!
