Keeping your instrument well maintained is the most important thing you can do for it, however it is a task which is frequently neglected by musicians!
Each time you play everyday dirt, skin oils, sweat, rosin, and (worst of all!) makeup and fragrance are transferred onto the instrument. Combined, these result in a quick build up of grime, particularly on the body of the instrument, which dampens the sound by reducing vibrations. The impact dirt has on the sound of an instrument is astonishing! If left for long enough grime build-ups will begin to irreversibly adhere to the varnish of your instrument, resulting in damage.
