    Hey guys/girls
    Can anyone tell me how to properly clean an fox 40 classic whistle

    And is it possible that there is a mold inside of it

    Regards

    I now know what I am doing this weekend. Both decent whistles three years old and never been cleaned. I don't really want to think about it!

    Vinegar and bicarbonate of soda will
    also do the job- I also believe Coca Cola (or Pepsi or other colas) will do the trick.

    Leave it in your shorts when they go into the washing machine. Found that out by accident, but it didn't affect the whistle at all.

    I know one referee who left his whistle unattended, at which point his colleagues filled it with vaseline. So when he went to blow it to call in the captains, he was rewarded with a spluttering pffft, and fits of giggles from his assistants. I believe revenge was in the form of deep heat smeared on the inside seams of boxer shorts, but my eyes are watering even thinking of that ...!

    I've just done this and can vouch for how surprisingly effective it was!
