You can even use them regularly to clean your Guitar without any needed polishes (in case of daily cleaning when your Guitar is not too dirty)

2. Guitar Polish / Guitar Cleaner 

As I said above, you cannot use just any kind of detergent on your Guitar. A specialized Guitar polish will remove all doubts because it does not contain any harmful chemicals that will destroy your instruments.

Here I will suggest some significant ones for your reference…

This is one of the best cleaners used by most Guitarists. It cleans totally and quickly, restores any finish to its original luster, leaves a micro-thin, stain-resistant protective layer and won’t build up.

Safe on all lacquer finishes, including nitrocellulose. Not recommended for matte finishes. Musicians, repair shops, guitar techs, instrument makers, and collectors around the world use Music Nomad’s most popular guitar care polish, the Guitar ONE, making guitar care and maintenance easier, while not compromising on quality.

3. Oil

Oil provides a protective barrier, conditions the wood and stops it drying out. It is divided into 4 main types: natural mineral, petroleum distillates, bore oil and lemon oil with their own pros. However, remember that oil is usually suitable for most fretboards except for the Maple ones, which have a hard and lacquered finish (it will have no effect, and could even harm the lacquer).

Representing the bore oil product line, Music Nomad MN702 will be worth considering. It is free of lemon, water, and petroleum, so you don’t need to worry about damage or unwanted residue. It’s made entirely of natural minerals, which nourish the fingerboard and restore the smoothness of the instrument. However, you should not expect that it will protect the Guitar from grime.

The products suggested above are my personal choices, some people may not like some products and claim them harmful to their instruments, but as long as you properly follow the user manual, everything will be fine. And lastly, always remember; don’t use a household cleaner on your Guitar!
