How I use the Dr Ice Range…..

Click Here to BUY NOW!

My general procedure is as follows:

  1. Remove strings.
  2. Apply a small amount of “Dr Ice Vintage .76”  with a clean cloth and use an old cloth to clean off all the finger grease etc.  If necessary polish the frets and “exfoliate” the fingerboard using Dr Ice Vintage .76″ and #0000 wire wool.
  3. Use an old cloth to remove any excess wire wool bits (don’t let them get on the pickups) and excess Dr Ice Vintage .76″. Apply a new coating of “Vintage .76”, leave to soak in (sometimes this is overnight with really dry necks! More often though it’s a matter of leaving if for 2 – 10 mins to soak.)
  4. Use “Axe Blast” to clean the body of the guitar. Use the microfibre cloth to buff to a shine.
  5. I use Axe Blast and the “Chamois” for metalwork cleaning (pickups, control plates, chrome tuners etc)
  6. Lube the bridge screws and any other moving parts with “3 in1″ oil.
  7. Polish the neck with the Microfibre cloth – the Dr Ice Vintage .76″ should have soaked in by now!
  8. Using a dampened foam pad in the “Dr Ice Axe Wax”, apply a coating over all the paintwork. Leave it for a few minutes.
  9. Buff to a shine with the microfibre cloth.
  10. Use the Chamois without the other products to clean in between times. It’s structure alone will remove most marks. If anythings being stubborn add a little Axe Blast, and buff away!!

I hope that helps. – See the “In Use” Blog for more specific information!

      Unfortunately, there will be no more Gerlitz supply to the UK. However, I can highly recommend the Axe Wax range which will be live soon. I hope this helps.
