A highboy is a chest of drawers, and normally is cleaned with a soft cloth. Or, do you mean haut bois, e.g. high wood, otherwise known as an oboe? That is cleaned immediately after use by swabbing out the interior to get out all the disgusting spit that got past the reed. Coal is not recommended for either.

Not my keyboard. It's those 10,000 monkeys who have been typing randomly for a million years to reproduce the works of Shakespeare. This is as far as they have gotten so far.

Hi Sootman.

I have a high boy as well. 53' I need a brush also but don't know the size. I suspect that Coalburner would know so you might try PM'ing him.
