First thing you need to remember is: ukuleles are meant to be played, so play them! However, there are 3 main things or simple rules, you should keep in mind:
- After you played it....clean it! Do not complicate with expensive products, simply use a soft cotton cloth.
- Store it! The best option is to buy a bag or a case, bag is usually a cheaper version, but less heavy. Many of ukuleles now come with a bag included. The biggest ukulele enemies are sunlight and heaters.
- Pay attention to humidity. If the air is dry, ukulele can crack. To avoid that, get your uke a humidifier. On the other hand, your ukulele can also warp. In this case you have to buy a silica gel pack, which you put in the ukulele case.
