Easy maintenance!

Hi, folks, This product is so easy, and so handy! It's just, open the tin, put the stuff on (as instructed) and that's it! And, equally importantly, it does the job! It goes with my other guitar tools in the toolbox, and it is so quick to use! The perfect everyday cleaning, between the big one! (that we all do, (occasionally!)

seems to work ok but not sure how long it will last? Size was much smaller than I expected. I have 4 guitars I wanted to clean and have used it on all of them so we will see how many cleans I get out of it. It arrived on time and in good nick - thanks

Does the job perfectly!

Easy to use. But not sure how long it will last. A small box.

I'm not even sure it works. With the spray I feel it on my fingers. With this product I see or feel nothing.
