Need to remove rosin build-up from the face of your instrument? Petz has the answer. A rosin-removing solvent and a follow-up polish can help you get rid of that ugly, tone-deadening build-up.
Petz makes this rosin remover to allow you to remove rosin build up without damaging the instrument's finish. Apply a small amount on a soft cloth, and use gentle pressure to wipe away rosin dust. For best result, use the Petz polish with pine oil to finish the cleaning process and leave a proper, instrument-safe shine. The rosin remover and polish each come in a 1 oz bottle. You can purchase either item separately, or together to save shipping costs.

I have used this on several basses with pretty good results. The rosin remover has a unique aroma which some may not like (it kind of smells like a Ricola cough drop). The polish is liquid, so be prepared for that. I have had zero finish related issues with either product, but I would still try it somewhere inconspicuous first. if you have a thick coating of rosin, be prepared to perform several cleanings to get it all off.
