    Hello, everyone!
    I’ve had my Special 20 C Major for about a month and played it every day
    doing the excercises here at mitchgrainger.com and on the Facebook.
    And to me it just doesn’t sound that good any more, but I don’t do
    any maintenance on it. I’ve heard about knee-slapping.
    Is that good? Does one slap it on one’s knee after playing a bit
    to teach that pesky saliva to stay away? There’s more germs in a human’s
    mouth than there are in a canine, so I can see it could use with a slap
    on the knee. But other than that, is it OK for me to disassemble my
    Special 20 C Major and give it a vinegar, rubbing alcohol rinse now
    that it doesn’t seem to reverberate as clearly as it did 3 weeks ago
    when I got it? What is the rule of thumb here with harmonicas?
    How often do you clean one that’s being used daily?
