Any of you guys ever use any chemicals, cleaners or polishes to clean up and preserve your bass case or amplifier covers? Some of my stuff is pretty old and I would like to rejuvenate the covers.<br /> <br /> Any recommendations?<br /> <br /> Thanks

When I can, it's into the bathtub with the cover. cab, or whatever with water, dish soap, and a light-medium brush. If not the bathtub, out in the yard with a hose. Electronics are removed, naturally. Let it dry then apply STP Son of a Gun Protectant. Makes 'em look good again.

Thank you guys for your input!<br /> <br /> I had a bottle of the STP Son of a Gun but for some stupid reason, I threw it away a couple weeks ago. It sat in the garage for a few years unused.<br /> <br /> I found a bottle of Turtlewax Formula 2001 that has also been sitting unused for quite a few years. After cleaning the spider webs and dirt off two cases with Windex, I put a generous amount of the Formula 2001 on an rubbed it in really well and then let it sit overnight and then wiped off the lint.<br /> <br /> The covers on both cases really came back to life and look really good. It was well worth the effort.

I cleaned all my Tolex cases and my circa 80s Music Man head (which was shamefully filthy from being in storage) with Gunk Glass Cleaner. Then I used Mequier's Ultimate Black (both of these are readily available on Amazon). The results were great--everything looks brand new.
