I just got finished watching this.  Had seen some cello cleaning material before, but I must admit I become lax. After all I don’t play nearly as hard as a professional therefore how often do I really need to clean it, right?

Check this out. Here’s my microfiber rag afterwards. 

I have seen the light, or in this case the darkness. I must say I was shocked by how much dirt was on there.

It bears repeating that one must be extra careful to tilt the cello to avoid possibility of drippage. It is absolutely critical not to get the alcohol on the cello body itself.
