Some people just don’t know. They didn’t learn from an instructor who helped with the small stuff. I was in a music camp class when the instructor told the class why they should clean it off. You could see some uncomfortable “what? really?” looks, and the next day you could see they had made an effort. But the build-up needed more than a wipe by then. There is also a kind of pride some people have in it, I’ve seen. Maybe, “Look how much I play! Look how I only care how great I sound, not what my fiddle looks like!”
