A colleague bought a piano for her son who recently started piano lessons. She's glad it's the piano that he's interested in instead of drums. She's actually concerned about the maintenance part of the musical instrument when she said that. While the maintenance of a piano is by a piano professional technician, a drum set is not, she thinks, or at least the cymbals need to be cleaned every now and again to get rid of the dirt and give them back their shine.
No cause for worry, I thought, because nowadays there are good cleaning liquids available that are able to do the job with less effort and in a shorter time too.
Groove Juice is one such product I saw online the other day. All you need to do is to give the cymbal a spray or two, let it sit and then scrub it off with either a kitchen pot scrubber or a toothbrush. The cymbals will come out as good and shiny as new. The ad says it doesn't smell awful as there is no ammonia in it.
If I own a drum set or cymbals, I would certainly buy groove juice. For that price and the work it does, I'd be crazy not to give the product a try.
