    I searched the web but found no useful tips. I would think a strong oil that will not harm the metal would work best. I know any citrus removes tobacco odor, but not sure if the acid will strip your instrument's finish. You might want to call your local ISD and speak with a music teacher, they should know best. Good Luck

    Place it in a garbage bag with a box of strong fabric softening sheets...Bounce is pretty strong. Let it sit for about 3-4 days then wipe down with a fabric sheet.
