Hi - My 5th grader started flute lessons last week and was given a plastic cleaning rod and standard handkerchief by his instructor. Long story short, in attempting to clean the flute body piece at home, the cloth bunched up around the rod and both are stuck. (Really really stuck.)
I can see the handkerchief through at least 5 of the key holes. Would it be safe to try to snip some of the fabric away with manicure scissors through the keyholes to try to reduce the bunchiness of the cloth?
