So will mosquito repellant, such as "Off". It will destroy a lacquer finish. You bring an old acoustic to an outdoor trip, around the campfire, etc. Someone with repellant on their forearms picks it up for a tune or two.. Finish is all screwed up. I know this first-hand.
Who would have thought…something that you put in your mouth and is fundamentally safe
to ingest could do such damage?
Maybe a sticky on potential 'household' products that could damage guitar finishes.
Lesson learned: Never, ever leave your instruments out in the open.
PSA…You want to inform MLPer's that Orajel, that's right Orajel the stuff for toothaches
will destroy a finish.
I bought 3 mission style tables from Restoration Hardware, 3 drawer cocktail table,
two drawer side..you get the idea.
Bought these before my daughter was even conceived.
Quartersawn red oak, impeccable build quality.
Mfd by Michaels of Sacramento.
When my daughter started teething, (can't remember if she was walking)
an open tube was left on one the tables.
While cleaning up, I noticed that some had oozed out.
Knowing that the table had a some 17 coat finish, thought nothing of it.
Dragged a paper towel across and you guessed it…..bare wood.
Plenty of members here have children, some are quite obsessive about their instruments.
