Re: Sanitizing instruments
As a young director with no budget to flush instruments I stupidly used Listerine to flush my brasses. Big mistake! It was corrosive and did some damage on some of the old thin french horn slides forcing me to replace them. Ouch! I discovered some of the horn slides had been over buffed by overzealous repairmen doing overhauls in the past. Other than warm water I leave the real flushing to the pros.
