    Anyone have an idea on getting dog doodoo off of a pedal and whether to use it again? Said dung has dried sufficiently to mostly peal off. Should I even dare try or just chuck it? Just wondering…… Wife wants to keep dog and so do three daughters. Should I just chuck it or try and dry it out? Help me friends…….

    I'd remove the guts before doing any in-depth scrubbing. Wait for it to dry sufficiently, re-stuff the circuit and good as new!

    My daughter has gotten peanut butter fingers on a few of mine before; nothing a little soap and water won't remedy..

    Recommend using dogs skull to scrape pedal clean.

    Truer words were never spoken. But then I'd recommend giving the directive via phone or text. Women have much power when it comes to persuasion..

    I love my dog. But I don't let him anywhere near my pedalboard ;)

    It's just dog crap. It's not radioactive.

    yo, i'll gladly take any pedals off your hands that you've lost to the tragic event of dog crap touching them

    might as well, they're ruined forever

    Maybe the dog was just critiquing the music it heard!

    What pedal is it? Were you playing through it at the time of defecation? Dogs have a sixth sense and can spot a stinker a mile off. Maybe it was a rebranded Joyo and the dog decided to give it a dose of Freakish Brown.

    Goo Gone is the best! Works like a charm!!!!! Be careful with the lettering & graphics when cleaning pedals!!! Windex ain't bad either.

    Are you sure it wasn't your wife that pooped on the pedal?

    The proper TGP solution is to have it professionally sanitized and rehoused in a fancy brass case.
