Most importantly, start with one small section at a time, not a large section for the entire back, for example. More than a few players, even seasoned professionals, create quite a mess by trying to clean too large an area at a time. Whenever using a new brand of cleaner or polish for the first time, be sure to test it on a small, inconspicuous spot. Place approximately 10-15 drops of polish on a clean, folded cotton or microfiber cloth or clean soft folded paper towel. Using moderate pressure, rub polish onto varnish in a circular motion in 1" or larger circles. Wipe off polish before it has dried with another clean soft cloth or soft paper towel. Use light to moderate pressure either in a circular motion or in the direction of the grain.

A leather oil should be used on your leather case cover from time to time, as for any fine leather product. This acts to lubricate the leather by replenishing natural oils, and is especially useful at all stress points. Pecard’s dressing is petroleum-based, which is far better than animal based products, since there is no risk of mold or microorganism infestation. A light coating a couple times a year, with a little more at the stress points, should be great insurance.
