Clean and wash off mouth calls and the container. Then put them in the fridge.
 
Clean off the old chalk from the boxes and if need be touch up the bottom of the lid with a fine sandpaper. Paste wax (lightly) the box itself once a year. (Not around the tips of the side boards though)
 
Trumpets clean and paste wax those once a year. run a pipe cleaner through the hole every so often.
 
Crow and owl locator clean (take apart) and wax those once a year. (They are wood)
 
Slate call just keep surface clean and try not to touch it. The wood stiker tip I keep clean by scraping (lightly) with a knife witch keeps a bite on the tip.

One thing you need to do is keep your pets away from your calls....they might swallow a diaphram or worse yet chew up a box call or trumpet call.

Dogs have real powerfull bites up in the 1000 psi of pressure...they can easily crush a box call. 

I learned that. Yogi be dead by now for all the stuff he's chewed up if he didn't hunt as good as he does.

You got that right, Jen in less then a year has eaten a wallet and chewed up its contents, cards, money and I still have not found a couple cards. Eyeglasses, work shoes (2 pairs) actually ate a lot of the leather, bite through electrial extension cords (not plugged in) Air compressor hose (not charged) Then she just looks at you in a way saying, WHAT.[:D]

Rubbing alcohol on wooden friction calllers.  Cleans well; dries quickly.
Why be good when you can B-Mobile or Spin & Strut.
