    Using a light wax or oil, rub it up and down with non Abrasive white scotch brite or 0000 steel wool to get all the dirt out of the grain. Then wipe clean with a paper towel. Then put oil or oil/wax on it with the towel, let soak in for 15-30 minutes, then wipe dry again. Do this or as necessary between string changes.
