I have seen many videos on "how to clean harmonicas", but in all of them, you have to take the harmonica apart, clean it and reassemble it.
The thing is there's no marine band harmonica in my country. I bought it from the US on Amazon and I can't afford to take it apart. If something bad happens while taking it apart and putting it back together, I can't order another one easily. Besides, when you take the harmonica apart, you might have to retune it, and I don't know how to do that. Again, I can't afford to take the risk.
So is there any way to clean the harmonica without taking it apart, and without damaging the holes or changing the tune? I used to clean my Chinese haps with alcohol or water, but I don't know if it's the right way to do it for this one.
Would putting some water or alcohol in every hole and then drying it with a hairdryer work? The hairdryer would remove the moisture from the water or alcohol.
