Default Cleaning a Drum Head?...

Yeah weird question, but anyways I stopped using moongel as it left green gunk on my head. Any safe ways to get it off as I wiped a tiny portion annd turned into a huge strange stain.

Windex can be used to clean clear drum heads.

It does if you then light it, lol.

I never ever cleaned a drum head, not saying it hasn't been done.

Mr. Clean Magic Pads

They will also remove cymbal logos. Just gently scrub and beat up head and it will look like new. Love those things.

clear or coated? one head or multiple heads?

If it's just one head and it bugs you I'd just get a new head
