SANITIZING YOUR PIANO KEYS - PLEASE SHARE
To whom is concerned into piano playing, teaching, retailing, servicing, delivering, cleaning in general.
The uncertain time we are all experiencing, put us in question on the right manner to sanitize our keyboard and piano. My recent experience in a auto mecanic workshop showed me that cars, under current pandemic health and safety regulation, must now being sanitize by a trained staff, prior and post service by our professional mecanic.
The product they use is largely available in car accessory stores.
I would recommend any persons who play the piano into a sharing circumstance to, similarly to our car repairer, sanitize the instrument and the keys, using this product (the illustration is just to give an example, other brand/label may be as good)
This product does not contain alcohol. I would use with no hesitation on new/recent pianos, which cabinets are made of polyester lacquer. If you are unsure, you may try first on unconspicuous area. I would avoid to use it on ivory/ebony keyboard as well as spirit based lacquer (old fashion cabinet). It smells is very discreet, and i do not know any case of allergy about it (always read the label)
The operation is to use a sprayer (hair dresser or empty window cleaning sprayer) on a microfiber cloth before rubbing on the surfaces of the instrument and keys. Do not spray the product directly in the keys. ... See MoreSee Less

Simon Thew, thought this might be relevant to the stuff Nicolette has been saying.
