How to clean my ukulele?

Our ukulele can get dirty in various ways, including the natural grease and sweat of our hands that is impregnated to the mast with use, so it is natural that we wonder how to clean it.

The best way to keep your ukulele clean is pass a microfiber cloth after each use and so you will not have to worry about doing a thorough cleaning because it will remain as new!

In addition to this you can take the precaution of having it stored when you are not using it to protect it from dust and dust, for this you can use a cover, even if it is the simplest or even the cardboard box in which it was delivered.

To clean the strings all you need is to pass your microfiber cloth every time you touch it, they do not need special products or anything special.

Now, if you are a fearless person who prefers to clean it deeply, it is best to take steps

1 Remove the ropes

We must start by removing the strings as these hinder us to clean the dishes, apart we do not want to break them by accident or wear them by pulling them more than they can resist.

2 Clean the dust

With a wooden or plastic stick go carving the parts where the dirt is accumulated, usually this is just on the sides of the fret division, and near the nut. With the help of a damp cloth we can carve harder.

3 Clean the complicated parts

We can also use wet swabs to trap dust from hard-to-reach areas. Remember also to pass a dry one so that it catches the low humidity that it could have left so that the mechanism does not rust or be absorbed in your ukulele.

4 Help yourself with a cleaner

Finally we can use a wood cleaner as well as the Pledge to clean it, remember to use a soft cloth like the one used to clean the glasses, and with only four drops of this cleaner we can reach it all over the ukulele. if you put too much, the oil will be impregnated everywhere.

If your ukulele is Waterman brand it is not so cumbersome and in fact it is very easy to clean them because you only need to pass a damp cloth and then a dry one.
