    Oh yeah... Sugar molecules will dissolve into your saliva and the condensation is water, yes. But it's water made from heating up your saliva and it's got the sugar in it.

    I once saw a flute player who never cleaned out her flute and constantly played while chewing hard candy and I cleaned it for her. Out came the Hard Candy... lol:huh:

    I've posted this before - but I can't find it quickly -

    I once sat beside a young lady who was struggling with her tone, the solution was to take a knitting needle, in the middle of the set, and ream out the backbore of her mouthpiece. :thumbdown: Her intention was to clean out all the accumulated food from the mouthpiece - it worked :thumbsup: - but I was so nearly physically sick. :-P

    She was a talented player too, but ALWAYS eating. :shhh:

    Poor old trumpet. :-(

    Keep your horn as clean as you can - that's the message here. :play:
