Cleaning the Shofar

A shofar is a Jewish instrument made from a ram’s horn. It is blown during Rosh Hashanah to mark the beginning of the year as well as other important Jewish holidays like the Yom Kippur. It is very important to care for the shofar properly and to clean it regularly. Here are some methods on how you can clean your shofar and eliminate unpleasant odor.

  • Using a toothbrush, scrub the shofar with soap and water.
  • Another method that you can try is to pour vinegar into the shofar and allow it to dry. Soak the shofar in a basin of soapy water and let it dry.
  • Plug the mouthpiece with an earplug. Fill a basin with hydrogen peroxide and put the shofar into the basin. The solution will clean the shofar from residue and unwanted odor.
  • You can also buy a non-toxic shofar odor neutralizer spray. This will eliminate the shofar’s unpleasant smell.
