Toothbrushes are generally flushed twice a day immediately after usehow many of us sterilize our toothbrushes.
I can see the point in sterilizing a second hand one that you have just bought.
We wash our dishes in warm soapy water and don't get ill
I suspect that all the moisture in a sax is condensation I cannot see much growing there if you simply use a pull through to clean and dry it and rinse the MP in water and dry it
My disjointed thoughts were not questioning keeping instruments clean but the suggestion that they need sterilization.Toothbrushes are generally flushed twice a day immediately after use
I can't speak for anyone else but reasonably diligent as I am, I don't do that with my mouthpiece
Actually, I submerge my dishes in super-hot soapy water and come back when it's cooled sufficiently
Agree and disagree: it's moisture but it's from a mouth and it will be loaded with bacteria. I agree that the regular use (after every session) of a serviceable (clean) pull through should suffice to keep the harmful stuff at bay. I've never heard anyone on the forum complain of being ill as a result of things living in their horns - I think you'd need to be super-unhygienic to even stand a chance of an infection, or be super-prone to infections.
