A ways down the road, I started realising that my whistles were getting dirty and I thought “Is there a good way to clean these whistles?”! I did a quick search around the Internet and found some interesting ways and recommendations.
One of my colleagues, JVN, mentioned that one method is to rub alcohol to disinfect it. You’d have to leave the whistle for a few days to let it dry off on its own. Another is to use a Q-tip and water.
Since there wasn’t anything concrete, I thought “Why not create a video on how I do it?”. I personally have a set of FOX 40 Classic whistles. Might help others so enjoy below if you haven’t tried yet or have a different way!
The difference? Imagine trying to take a deep breath when you have a congested throat. Not easy and definitely not soothing right? That’s how your whistles are after long-term use. Clean them up and you’ll be good to go with clean whistle blasts.
Cost? The bottle of mouthwash you can see in the video cost me CAD 3.14. Fair price for being able to clean my whistles over the long-term.
My method will leave the whistles tasting minty. Definitely a plus point!
