How to Take Care of our Tambourine Membrane

Not at all an issue because obviously the main deal here is to take care of the tambourine. Now if you have the goat skin type of membrane and it looks old and dirty because of unnecessary things that might have happen as years go by, I can only suggest a very mildest vegetable cleaner which is organic and no harmful chemical that you can use to wipe off the dirt and dust in the membrane of your tambourine.

Simply put an ample amount of vegetable wash or cleaner into half liter of water and mixed it till it gets a bubble. After that, use a cotton cloth or cheese cloth and dip it in the mixture as you wipe clean your tambourine membrane.

You can personally buy vegetable wash in groceries as long as it says all organic and does not contain any harmful chemicals so that your tambourine membrane would not be torn. I also suggest that when you wipe the membrane, be sure that the cloth is not too wet that it would terribly soak the goat skin tambourine membrane. Just be gentle when you wipe your tambourine.

Care for the Durable Plastic Tambourine Membrane

If you have this type of tambourine, well simply not use any material that can cause a reaction to the durable plastic when you clean it. Actually, you should avoid putting oil in this type of tambourine. As much as possible the cloth that you would use is just facial tissue or a soft shammy which will help to clear out thumb marks. You can use a few drops of eye cleaner which is organic. But the problem is this product will not be available at your nearest pharmacy shop. Anyway, you can use a few drops of mineral water for cleaning the membrane just don’t drop it straight to the tambourine.

You need to pour the mineral water into the shammy. Do not make it too wet for your tambourine to absorb water. Just an ample amount will do and do not scrub it. Never ever put pressure or force when wiping the membrane. Just be gentle and your tambourine membrane will be just fine.

How to Take Care of Your Tambourine Ribbons

A ribbon balances your tambourine. The basic thing that you should know is that whenever you cut the tip end of the ribbon, you should have run it through a candle to close any annoying loose thread. You can also use a nail polish which is colorless to put it at the tip of your ribbon.

When you notice that your tambourine ribbons are already dirty, you can simply hand wash it with any powdered laundry soap and soak it. If you think that your ribbons do fade in colors, just segregate the white colored ones to darker colors. You don’t need to use any bleaching agent when it comes to washing off your ribbons.
