Proper use of Cecilio care kit and consistent maintenance of instrument will help ensure that you will enjoy your flute / piccolo for many years to come.
Hanky Swab – Use the hanky swab after every playing session. After playing, disassemble the flute and drop the weighted cord through the main body. Pull swab through to remove moisture and dirt particles from the bore. Clean the foot joint in the same manner to prevent corrosion of the inside of the instrument and to keep the pads clean and free from moisture.
Coil Swab – Use after each playing session to clean the inside of the head joint. Push one end of swab into the head joint and turn back and forth to remove particles and moisture.
Cork Grease – Use small amount of cork grease on joints to help ease assembly of your flute. Wipe off excess.
Polishing Cloth – Use after each playing session on outside of your instrument to remove particles and fingerprints.
Key brush – Use the soft end of the key brush once a week to remove dust or lint that accumulate around post and springs and under key rods. Use the pipe cleaner end on hard to reach areas.
