This traditional recipe cleaner and polish is safe for most varnishes.
We recommend testing on a small area first. Apply sparingly with a lint free cloth and polish untill dry with a clean cloth.

Pros: You only need to use a small amount to get a good result and it effortlessly cleaned away any fingerprints etc from my violin, leaving a lovely finish. I would recommend this to anyone with a student/inexpensive instrument like mine, as it made it look like new.
Cons: It does have quite a strong smell but it does a good job - though some people may not like the shine it creates.
A sterling product
Pros: A really satisfying product! I used this to clean a violin that hasn't been cleaned in a decade. Parts of it were so dirty that I'd assumed the original varnish had been worn away. I was wrong: after cleaning it now looks like a new instrument. It has polished up to a very glossy, high shine, and required relatively little product to get that finish. It does take some elbow grease, and is probably best done in small stages and repeated as necessary. Once cleaned, it seems to repel new rosin and dust build-up. I found the smell while applying and since to be fairly mild (and not unpleasant).

Pros: Fiddle looks shiny afterwards
Cons: Would prefer one bottle that cleans strings and fiddle but obviously they require different products
Other: Takes a bit of elbow grease but really works
