Notemaker Posted January 6, 2020 Share Posted January 6, 2020 When after decades, or a century, of 'breathing' a component accumulates gunk, how it is removed? I read in one contribution here that turpentine is used to help remove gunk off of a vintage reed. I just wonder why not 'thinners'?. perhaps warm 'alcohol' as used in electronics for cleaning smoker's tar from circuit-boards? Too wondering what kind of gunk is found on them? Perhaps vapors from the bellows construction adhere to a warm reed, or perhaps kitchen-grease and smokers' tar from the air in Bars and homes? I guess this applies to Accordion reeds too?
