I cleaned my Burke for the first time today.

I first disconnected the upper bore and lower bore from the tuning joint/slide.

I put light amounts of Vaseline on the O rings on both sides of the tuning joint and inside on the surface of the tuning joint.

I then took a silk microfiber cloth strip and tied it to some paracord and pulled it through the lower bore with 91% isopropyl alcohol on the strip.

I then put the whistle back together and dripped drops of water and Palmolive dish liquid mixed together in a bottle in the opening on the top of the mouthpiece. The drops dripped out of the mouthpiece as I held the whistle upside down.

I then covered the opening on the top of the mouthpiece and blew through the mouthpiece as if I was playing a few times.

It is now sitting up vertically and drying.

Did I clean the whistle right?

Add two more ingredients and you'll be flying.

The whistle, it's not rocket science. Don't overthink it too much.

If you play it as well as you clean it, then the tunes should flow :)
