Bleach and alcohol hand sanitizers....are they damaging our concertinas?


Recommended Posts

Hi

I have been careful to make sure my hands are dry after "sanitizing" them before I pick up a concertina. I am concerned about damaging the finish on the wood or metal. Am I being over protective? Has anyone else had a problem, or concern?

The alcohol part of the santisers will evaporate very quickly, so as long as you gav it 30 seconds or so before picking the instrument up I'd have thought it would have been OK.

 

Don't know about the bleach though.

Simon, 

 

that is a bleach, not a hand sanitiser, OK for use against bacteria, not viruses. Not good on skin anyway!, use rubber gloves for protection against bleaches. I suppose that after the bleach has dissolved the skin and flesh, there may be damage from the residual bone drumming on the action box cover? 😶
