    to clean the frets first..
    the obvious thing would be first to do it while changing the strings
    take a soft cotton cloth and clean the frets ...
    u can apply a little pressure by wrapping the cloth with ur index finger and rub the fret board near the fret wire coz thats where most dirt sticks in..
    u can use the fret board polish ...use a good one when the guitar board tends to look too dry..use a good quality one..
    or u can add a little mineral oil on the fret board ...
    hope this helps..
    and please stay clear of other oils and other substances..
    use stuff that is exclusively meant for guitar.

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    One thing I must caution you about:

    If you are changing strings on your acoustic guitar and have a moveable bridge, PLEASE mark the location of the bridge. Because in case you make the mistake of taking off all the strings at once, your bridge will slip out and it will be a major headache to get it setup right again.

    So 3 notes:

    1) Do not take off all strings at once. Do it one at a time

    2) Mark bridge position in case it slips from place.

    3) If you are doing this on an electric guitar with a floating lockable bridge, make sure you unscrew the locking tuners or you will break the strings.
