    Fender Speed Slick String Cleaner Question

    So I just got the Fender Speed Slick product, it´s a guitar string cleaner that I thought was a good idea to try out, however, I have a classical guitar that needs some string cleaning and I was wondering if this Speed Slick product is usable on the strings of a classical guitar.

    The package of the product has some text saying "The Fender Speed Slick cleaning solution is safe for any finish and/or fingerboard wood.", and it sounds convincing and all but I want to be absolutely sure about using this on a classical guitar. I was wondering if anyone has tried this and could help me out on confirming is this is a good idea or not.

    I'd advise looking on the packaging for an ingredients list. When you're asking about a classical guitar, I assume you mean a nylon stringed instrument?

    I use
    Stringjoy's Natural Guitar String Conditioner and they insist its 100% safe for strings AND fretboards. They back it with a money-back guarantee. If the Fender product reads "Do not get in eyes," or "wash hands after use," then you probably want to avoid it.

    Yes, I am refering to a nylon stringed instrument.

    In the package of the product it just says that it is safe to use on any type of wood or finish, it doesn´t have any kind of warning, so I assume it´s
    ok to use it on a classical guitar, but i´m just too afraid, im not convinced.

    As far as I've read, it's basically a steel string lubing/corrosion preventing product.

    I doubt it'll be of any use on nylon strings.

    As for the woods being damaged, I believe it's a non issue, these products are intended to be applied on fretboards.
