There are so many varying opinions on what to use and not to use to clean a fret board. Let us start by stating that this product is only to be used in certain situations. Only use this on unfinished porous fret board wood such as rosewood. Never ever use this near any polyurethane or nitrocellulose finishes. It will deteriorate them. Also be very sire to follow proper cleaning guidelines before trying to use this product. It is not made from lemons but a petroleum distillate and if used improperly it can destroy finishes and loosen glue.

OK with that all being said let me tell you that there are very few alternatives to this product that I would suggest over it. It does wonders for cleaning the grime off of and out of the fret board that our natural oils and sweat leave behind. Secondly it provides these woods with an essential infusion of oil that they need to stay healthy. Many people do not realize that when a rosewood fret board starts to get that very open grained look to it or you start to notice an ashy grayness to it that it is in desperate need of help. Left in this state for to long the wood will dry and possibly crack causing a slew of fret board related issues. Use of this product is simply. Carefully apply it in small well placed doses, wipe it with one cloth, and then sop up all the residual oil promptly. It only takes a few seconds for the fret board to get replenished and done properly will ensure the long life of your prized instrument.

The only reason I took points away from this product is I am not a fan of the applicator. I would rather suggest using a linen type cloth to apply the product and clean the grime off before removing the excess. I find that the applicator can be a bit unpredictable and I would rather make a mistake on a cloth than on my fret board.
