      For me is a simple cuestion: Alcohol solve rosin. Use a very few amount of alcohol to clean it. 
      You must be so carefull if you don´t want to solve the varnish too.

      Asunto: [HurdyGurdyForum] Gurdy plaque?

      I have a hygiene question here. A few people have been commenting on the build-up of what they – and now I – call gurdy plaque. This is the powdering of rosin, tiny pieces of cotton wool, and lint that all seems to get glued firmly onto the surface of the varnish around the vicinity of the wheel. It doesn’t affect the sound but it IS noticeable and if you try to wipe it away it seems to either smear, or include bits of what you tried to wipe it with into its matrix.
      Any tips on safe removal of gurdy plaque? Is it a simple job or will it involve de-stringing and a through wipe-down with some sort of ‘wheel & varnish safe’ solvent?
