Caring for your Piano



Key Cleaning

Metholayted Spirits, sparsely applied on a cotton cloth, works well on ivory keys.

Ordinary plastic/celluloid keys respond to a wrung out cloth of water and washing up liquid.

For really stubborn keys, try brasso or better still have the keys professionaly cleaned on a buffing wheel with key soap.


Wax polish is always best for traditional french polishes.   Odd scratches can sometimes be treated with Coloron liquid scratch cover.

For polyester and really highly polished finishes, use Cory Piano Polish.
