How do you clean your Hi Gloss/Piano black speakers?
 
Hi All,

How do you clean your Hi Gloss/Piano black speakers?

I use Mr Sheen wood/leather/plastic cleaner which also protects the wood not sure how it would go with piano black finish.

anyone got recommendation?

thanks

Windex, test it our first on a small spot to see if you like it before doing the whole speaker

Well apparently you aren't suppose to use window cleaners on wood finish. :-)

I buy a new pair of speakers everyday. Saves on dusting.

I hose them down. ;)

I live in a vacuum.

I use stuff called "Invisible Glass" on our actual piano and clean it off with a microfibre cloth. Works great. If it were my expensive speakers, though, I'd probably get one of those air cans for computers and blow off any excess dust first.

Power washer works best for me

I use an automotive cleaner/detailer:

Small hand held dusting mop & Endust.
But any decent furniture or automotive quick spray will work, remember your cleaning clear lacquer, not wood directly.

Microfiber cloth indeed.

I use Zaino Z6 detail cleaner like i would on the C6 Vette i had for my CM 10 s2's.

Swiffer duster to remove all the dust. If you have any fingerprints left behind, use a microfiber towel and auto detailer like Mothers/ Meguiers, etc.

so im guessing the use of wood conditioners are out since no one uses them. i use on my floor standing as it has wood vinyl on it.

I got the cleaner/polish that they use on pianos from the local music store. Works great.

lovinthehd 06-13-2015 04:29 PM

Lemon pledge here. Also works great on my titanium bike frames. Why would it matter if it is wood under the piano black lacquer finish? Mine's bamboo....

+1

I do this every other year and mainly to protect the finish from UV. Otherwise, just a simple dusting with a high quality microfiber.

wife uses windex and nothing I can do to stop her except buy new gear :)

Endust. No polishes and such. Also works good on the surfaces of all your gear. Recommended to me by a reputable manufacture.

I just use a Swiffer Duster, as nobody ever touches mine.
