Thanks, my bow is quite new so at the moment I would easily get away with using a cloth on it. I don't think I would be brave enough to take the frog off
it's ok, if you don't take the frog off then tense the hair quite a bit before you clean, so to get hair away from stick as much as possible (without snapping the bow of course
) as you don't want to touch the wood of the stick with your cloth which is damp with methylated spirit (now I know the right word
but really....taking the frog off sounds 'scary' but I can ASSURE YOU it is NO big deal AT ALL, just take it off and you will see what I mean, it's a 'baby's job', you just don't realise it is not an issue at all until you actually do it, I used to be frightened of this too, until I saw it done by someone else then it clicked: 'what was I worried about'
