    Well, if it was a flute player that suggested this, and I wouldn't put it past one, we all know how they are......I should think that filling a flute with a can of cheez-whiz would help a sticky pad situation and improve the sound ROFL

    When my kids were really young, they would bring milk in no spill cups into our van. Sometimes one would drop on the ground and roll under a seat and not be found until it started to really stink. I can't imagine playing a horn that had that nasty smell. Maybe send this off to the mythbusters to see if they can confirm this myth.

    Good old plain soap and water is fine for me. Milk is for drinking as far as I'm concerned. Who likes the smell of spoiled milk anyway! Who would want to be around someone with a trumpet that smelled like like spoiled milk?

    Best wishes,

    YUCK! However if I did, I own a Bach, I love it to death. However the milk would only stay in it for about 10 seconds, because be all know how bad Bachs leak. In my view it'll still sound better with less milk

    We do? I really, really, don't want to start a brand war, trust me. That said, I've owned several different Bach cornets and trumpets over the years, and never had one leak. They may have other flaws, but that's not one I've encountered before.
