If there is anything I don’t like in a polish, it is a greasy, oily residue. Sadowsky Everyday Polish is a light polish that will clean everyday smudges, fingerprints, sweat, soda and beer spray and almost everything else that can get on your guitar from normal playing or gigging. It will not leave any greasy or oily film.
Spray Everyday Polish directly on your guitar or onto a soft cloth and lightly rub the area to be cleaned. Buff dry with a Sadowsky Microfiber cloth or another soft cloth before the mist dries on the guitar. I recommend a 100% cotton cloth like an old T-shirt or flannel. The only paper towel soft enough for use on guitars is, in my opinion, Bounty brand.
Avoid spraying on unfinished wood surfaces like fingerboards and acoustic bridges. However, Sadowsky Everyday Polish is excellent for cleaning finished maple fingerboards.
RESTORATION CLEANER AND POLISH
If you have instruments finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer, you may have encountered a situation where you use a regular guitar polish and the finish gets cloudy or dull, looking worse than when you started. This indicates an oxidized finish which requires a mild abrasive to rub out that outer oxidized layer. Many compounds have too much abrasive which can result in a dull, scratched finish.
Sadowsky Restoration Cleaner has the perfect amount of micro abrasives for safely cleaning the oxidized layer of nitro guitar finishes. For acoustic and larger electric guitars, tackle an area no larger than 1/4 of the top or back or about 1/3 the side. Place a penny sized dot of cleaner on the area to be cleaned. Using a small soft cloth, rub in circles until the cleaner begins to dry. Buff with a Sadowsky Microfiber cloth or a different soft cloth. Continue until the entire top, back or side is complete. Repeat the process with Sadowsky Restoration Polish for a high gloss and smudge resistant finish.
For finishes that are not oxidized, eliminate the Cleaner and begin with Sadowsky Restoration Polish. Maintain with Sadowsky Everyday Polish.
