Every now and then, I receive an email from a More with Music reader who asks questions, and or suggests topics I should blog about here on More with Music.
So, today's post is in response to a question from a reader.
Last week, I received these questions: "How do you clean/sterilize your rhythm instruments? How often do you clean them and what products have you found to be easy to use, yet good at cleaning too?"
Great questions! I'm sure we all have our own recommendations for cleaning rhythm instruments we use on a daily basis with students and clients.
I personally recommend Chlorox wipes. They are easy to keep in the car or in a session room and they have a very fresh, but not overly perfumed scent.
If an instrument comes in contact with any bodily fluid (i.e. snot, saliva, blood, etc..), I always clean it. Other instruments are cleaned biweekly (if I wait that long). I make sure to clean instruments more frequently when I'm aware of stomach bugs, viruses, colds, flu,etc.. going around.
The picture above is of the coolest things I found at the store. They are Chlorox wipes made in a travel size! They are so convenient and fit right in my cart that I carry from school to school. I love them!
I'd love to hear what others use to clean rhythm instruments and your opinions on products, methods of cleaning them, etc..
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Stay tuned for a song post soon!
