Music Teacher Magazine reviews pInstrument Cleaning Kit

Earlier this year, Music Teacher Magazine published a review of our pInstrument Cleaning Kit. Kevin Street, assistant director of music at Dulwich Prep London, reflects on the benefits of using appropriate cleaning regimes for your instruments in classrooms and schools.

Some of his key findings were:

  • Couple that with the ‘new normal’ we live in these days, a cleaning kit that promises to kill 99.9999% of all germs is very welcome. The kit is made up of a tube of tuning slide grease, a mouthpiece brush, a care cloth, and a bottle of sanitiser spray

  • The sanitiser spray is a much better option, however I would urge caution with any instrument sharing or re-use in the current pandemic. The spray can also be used on your hands, although these days there should be hand gel readily available in all music rooms.

  • The tube of grease (packaged in a 100% paper tube) works for any pInstrument’s tuning slide and it is made in the UK from 100 per cent natural ingredients.

  • One should not underestimate the value of a mouthpiece brush, and the claim is that the one supplied is built to last and shouldn’t need replacing. It feels sturdy and the metal part has a plastic coating, which should ensure no scratching while cleaning.

  • pInstruments should theoretically need less maintenance than their brass equivalents, but in these difficult times, cleaning and infection control is simply the most important thing we can do.
