Yesterday we talked about rosining the bow.  We said that we don't need to do a thorough rosin job every day.

You do need to clean your violin every time you play it. Gently wipe the wood of the violin and the bow with a soft, lint-free cloth. Most violinists I know advise using a natural fiber cloth. I agree with that advice. Get as much rosin dust off the wood as you can.


Never use any cleaner on your violin unless the instrument really needs it!

If you really do need to clean your violin use a product made specifically for that purpose.  Then use a violin polish on it to restore a protective coating.
