Wind instrument disinfection.

Post by Peter Cowell »

I have been trying to find a good method of disinfecting the mouthpiece of wind instruments, particularly wooden ones. Any suggestions?

We used to just dunk the mouthpiece in a disinfectant mixture. Mind you they were plastic mostly, some metal, so affecting the wood long term wasn't an issue. It was probably alcohol based. There is this; https://www.nfhs.org/articles/covid-19- ... uidelines/
