6 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: Who needs varnish cleaner? Many have misgivings fearing that what little lustre they have left will be compromised further. Hill's faithful old varnish is no exception and care is required in application. Over zealous rubbing WILL remove more than you hope for, especially on an oil-based varnish, though less so on a spirit-based one. You are adding something that does NOT belong to the original instrument and that is always risky no matter how brilliant the formula. But with great care, appearance can be enhanced and stubborn resins carelessly allowed to remain and stain can be teased out and away. A 25cc bottle seems small at first, but it is in your interest to make it last a long time!

Removes the fingerprints and the rosin build-up.
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Removes the fingerprints and the rosin build-up from the varnish safely and with minimum abrasion. Less risky than the home-made concoctions requiring shaking and speedy dabbing and removal. No complaints from my wife about the smell of polish after cleaning!

Cons: Tiny bottle.

Other: Leaves a nice tack-free and fresh look to the surface of old and new violins without shine or damage of the original varnish texture. Even dull varnish from around 1780s looks cleaner but without looking shiny or slick.

Highly recommend this cleaner.

Pros: IT did a very effective job of reviving the varnish on my late 19th Century French factory-made violin. It appears to be gentle on the varnish, but highly effective in removing old rosin and grime.

Cons: N/A
