My brother wants to know if he can clean his guitar with car wax. He says it's carnuba wax, but I think it'll rip the finish off. Can he? Is there any other type of household item that you can polish a guitar with? We're too poor at the moment to buy a cleaning kit.
it should be fine
Depends on the finish of the guitar. I assume it's going on to a guitar with a poly finish in which case it should be fine.
i'm sorry but there's no point in polishing a guitar with car wax, it'll just get finger printed up the second it get picked up, its not like he's going to put the guitar outside in the elements or drive around with it straped to his hood like an ornament.
There is no point doing it unless the guitar has a wax or oil finish.
Nah, it should be fine. I do it to my guitar once in a while just to make it all shiny.
