Hello,

Today my Father put up my guitar hanger for me after hounding him. I put my guitar in the hanger and looked at it. It was coverd in sweat and dust. Its easly seen since its all black. Now what im wondering is. What is a good way to clean sweat off a guitar with house hold items. Since its 8:30 and i can't go get some guitar polish or anything. I can clean the dust around the puckups and headstock with a Q-tip. But I would like my guitar to look nice on the wall. Since its next to another guitar that looks like new.

All I want is the sweat and smuges off.

On my guitars except for my strat I use alcohol swabs.

On my strat I use the cleaning cloth that came with my iPod.

Something microfiber-y should do the trick fine.

Just wait until you can buy some polish... Like, you know, tomorrow.

Well I have a Jim Dunlop cleaning rag but it doesn't do much. Or nothing at all. It's like caked on...about a years worth of sweat.

Put it in the washing machine

Seriously, I do it to my aforementioned cleaning cloth. It still works well.

Ok. I have that...would a baby wipe or clorox wipe work also. Or wetting a cloth.....Just trying to get more ideas.

I use a cloth made for cleaning glasses to clean my Jackson and it works pretty good...

hydrogen peroxide is very corrosive to metals, so be careful if you're brave enough to try that... I would think it's none too pleasant on painted surfaces either.

Just go to the store tomorrow and buy a proper polish...

The Peroxide wouldn't HARM the finish, poly is pretty damn strong stuff, especially catalyzed poly... but it would harm metal (in other words, bridge/pots/possibly knobs/pickup magnet or polepieces).

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
