Which fretboard cleaner for my UV777BK - lemon oil solution?

Guys tell me which fretboard/string cleaner is the best for my UV. I use lemon oil type solutions(Dr Stringfellow) most of the time on my other guitars, shall I use it on my UV too??

I just started using bore oil yesterday, and I have to vote for that....it really did make the fretboard feel better than ever, and it effectively darkened the lighter-grained rosewood fretboard on my UV777BK

I use lemon oil for cleaning, sometimes a toothbrush and soapwater. In case of severe dryness I use olive oil.

How is that Dr. Stringfellow stuff? I'm using Gibson fretboard conditioner & string cleaner/lubricant(2 different products). Do you use it just to wipe strings or also as a fretboard conditioner?

I use rubbing alcohol to wipe strings,and for crud buildup on the fretboard.I usually oil the board with lemon oil when it looks dry.How does bore oil compare to lemon oil?Worth the switch?

I use Hope's Premium Lemon Oil for cleaning/conditioning the fretboard, and it works great. Darkens the rosewood up to about an undyed ebony look... almost. Feels and plays SO smooth. I also used Hope's 100% Tung Oil for the back of the neck (it's natural, unfinished) and that also plays and feels very smooth. Rich at ibaneszrules.com recomends bore oil for the fretboard, but as I've never played that (Not sure where to get it. Probably a music store that specializes in classical style instruments) I can't comment on it.

Stringfellow is a lemon oil solution works for both strings and rosewood fretboards.
