TIKL Pro Restore was developed for luthiers and restorers, with the recognition of the need for a safe and effective restorers’ cleaner.

TIKL Pro Restore is now starting to be widely used across the industry and is gaining considerable notoriety. It is now being incorporated and cited within the courses of major teaching organisations such as The Newark International School of Violin Making and Repair and the Luthier’s Valse in Newark.

 

Designed for the cleaning and restoring of wooden, bowed musical instruments. It is water-based, non-flammable, has low environmental impact and leaves no residues. Its powerful but gentle formula is designed for the removal of aged dirt build up and dried rosin from varnished surfaces.

 

It is widely known in violin, viola, cello and double bass restoration that one of the most important aspects is the initial cleaning of an instrument prior beginning restoration. It is also known that this can be extraordinarily difficult and time consuming when faced with centuries of hardened rosin and general grime built up from years of playing.

 

Feedback from users indicate that Pro Restore is a real game changer when it comes to cleaning cracks. All feedback is welcome.

 

There are plenty of products open to restorers, but many have limited effectiveness, with others being toxic and harmful to health as well, as being potentially damaging to instruments.

 

With cleaners used in restoration the utopia surely is a product that has the effectiveness of a commonly used harsh solvent such as xylene but , as with Pro Restore has the following attributes:

  • Water-based
  • Low environmental impact
  • Fully biodegradable
  • Solvent free
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-flammable
  • Non-caustic
  • Non-abrasive
  • Harmless to plants & animals

 

It is important to note that Musical instruments have historically been finished using a multitude of varnish formulations with many different fastnesses and resistances to chemical preparations. With these different variations in mind, it is very important to ensure that this product does not affect your varnish adversely. Always test in a non-conspicuous area to ensure that the varnish remains fast. If there is any evidence of adverse reaction, stop using immediately.
