Use a low power heat source (candle, lighter etc,)

* Hold the Call upside down.

* Move it toward the heat source.

* You will immediately see a moisture ring form on the slate.

* This whole process only takes a few seconds. You do not want to get the call too hot!

* The moisture ring will rapidly approach the edge of the call.

* Once it does, remove the call from the heat source and allow it to cool down.

* Use a maroon Scotch-Brite pad to scrub the soot off the slate.

* Rub the slate with the Scotch-Brite only in one direction and blow off the dust

* Your call is now ready to call better than it ever has!

Thanks TG, I've never heard of that before. I just always rough mine up with a green or brown scotch brite pad. :thumbup:

I use alcohol preps on mine. It cleans the caller up quite nicely, dries quickly and can be used in the field. I also use it on box callers, strikers and anything else made of wood.
