Subject: RE: Help: Harmonica Sanitation
Yes, well here's the thing. I made the mistake once of soaking a wood harp: not a great result. It still plays...kind of. Mostly I go for the Special 20's or the black one (Deluxe Blues?) which are plastic, but I've been hesitant to drop the thing in a glass since that other fiasco. I've seen Neil Young plonk the thing into a glass before he plays it and it seems to work okay for him. The bleach thing...hmmm. Any other ideas? I've wondered about a squirt of Binaca or an alcohol mix of some kind. Might be fun if not effective ;). SB
