Just like the title says.
I use a good quality wax furniture polish or car wax.
Send that 49/50 Super Recording recently added in your signature line over the past day up to me in Ohio, and I will personally wipe it for you with doctor spit and my microfiber towel.
...and I will respectfully acquiesce in its travels to Florida for topping that off with attorney spit (much thicker than doctor spit) to provide you with years of shiny protection!
Never, ever do a chem clean, a "sonic" clean or even use hot water on it. Any of those things can make the finish fall off.
I would only use a mild dish soap for cleaning and never let any other chemical touch it.
I suppose my teacher spit would probably strip the finish right off it. Best not send it anywhere near Toronto.
Those old lacquers are amazingly sturdy, but if you have highly acidic hands and practice the horn a lot you might wish to consider using a pair of white Chinese gloves at home.
Actually, I wear light-weight cotton gloves, that I purchase at the drug store, whenever I handle my vintage Connies. My players, a 1927 2B and a 1950 28B, are raw brass so I don't worry about them. I do swab the leadpipe and tuning slide after every time I play them.
Now that's dedication to clean!
Not if it's diluted with beer! I read your signature line sir.
