Staying Germ-Free: New Poster Shows How to Clean Your Instruments


Now is a good time to reinforce a healthy habit that students will need as long as they play an instrument. Regular cleaning of their instruments is important for health and safety, particularly now. It’s also necessary for the long-term care of instruments – ensuring they can keep making engaging sounds over the years.

To help walk instrumentalists through the process, Pepper has created an instrument cleaning and care poster that is 24″ x 36″ in size and is perfect for any room where music is played. It includes general safety tips, steps to clean brass mouthpieces, and specifics on cleaning flutes, clarinets and saxophones.

Portions of the poster are included below. These free 8.5 x 11 downloadable graphics include three of the five segments featured on the poster. Helpful cleaning products to follow these safety steps are listed on Pepper’s instrument care pages for brass, woodwinds and strings.
