Guitar Germ Cleaning Experiment - Moosiko

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we conducted an experiment with glo germ and a UV flashlight to see how germs spread to a guitar after playing. We tried a few different cleaning techniques to see which was most effective. Our research helped hundreds of guitar teachers successfully navigate teaching music classes during a pandemic. Watch the video of our experiment and findings here:
