Cleaning pedals. -- what to use/not use?
Hey everyone, I scored iron cobra double bass pedals recently but they appeared really disgusting. Had questions not just about maintenance but how to actually "CLEAN" them:
If i dismantle the pedals, how do you recommend cleaning the footboards and other parts? Will disinfectant wiped be omon some or all parts, or does it ruinanything ( the finish, etc.)? I read one forum actually saying you can soak parts in soapy water then just dry them all off well and then oil/lubricate the necessary parts.
YouTube or other sites do not seem to say much about dthis, other than use a gentle cloth and toothbrush. But this doesn't actually CLEAN them for my case.
Any takers on how to help? Thanks all. :-)
