Default Baritone Ukulele string change

All strings off at one time, or, one at a time?
On acoustic guitar I know itís your preference. Is it so with the uke?
Thanks for any opinions!

I do one-at-a-time with any stringed instrument - electric guitar, acoustic guitar, archtop, banjo, mandolin, uke...

I like to take them all off at the same time so I can do a good cleaning and treat the fretboard.

I agree with Steve, one at a time.

I do one at a time, just like my guitars. I don't think it matters much, just personal preference

One at a time for any instrument with a floating bridge (i.e., mandolin).

All off for others (i.e., acoustic flat tops, etc.)

I texted The Ukulele Site to get their opinion and was told either way would be okay.
