How To Do A Brass And Woodwind Sterilization

By Jody Leach

Players of wood instruments would be using their mouths in order to play these instruments. Now the thing about using wood instruments is that since one would be putting it inside his mouth, he is actually susceptible to harmful germs and bacteria that would enter. Because of this, one would have to regularly do a brass and woodwind sterilization.

Now when one would want to clean this thing, he would have to take note that not every part has to be cleaned. He only needs to clean one part of the instrument and that part would be the mouthpiece because this is where one would blow. Of course to do this, he will be needing the necessary materials.

Basically, there are pretty much only four things that one would be needing for this type of job. These four things are a bottle of alcohol, a special mouthpiece disinfectant, a clean cloth, and of course a cup filled with hot water. Now for the mouthpiece disinfectant, usually music stores would be selling them just in case one would need a bottle.

Now after he has gathered all the necessary materials, then he will now need to put some disinfected on the mouthpiece. Now the thing about the disinfectant is that it will clean up all the dirt that can be found on that part. It is made out of a special solution that would actually take away any dirt or other kind of substance out.

Now when one has already done that, then he has to now put some alcohol on it. Now the alcohol would be used in order to make sure that all the hidden bacteria and germs there would die. Of course in order to do this, one would need to use a clean cloth, pour the alcohol on the cloth, and then wipe it on the mouthpiece so that the bacteria will die.

Now from there, one would now have to get the cup of hot water and get himself a bar of soap. He now has to put a little bit of the soap inside the water and mix them all together. Once he has already mixed the two substances together, then he now has to soak the mouthpiece in there for a few minutes maybe around ten.

After the fifteen minutes are already up, then one has to now rinse the soap off the instrument. Now he has to make sure to rinse it properly otherwise there will still be a lot of substances that would be left behind from all the cleaning. After he has already done the rinsing, then he may now wipe the water off and keep it.

So if one owns this type of instrument, he has to make sure that he cleans it this way regularly. This is done so that his hygiene will not be affected because reusing that thing over and over again without cleaning it will spread germs around. So he should probably clean it around once or twice in a week as to avoid any build up of bacteria or germs.
