    I've got it figured out now. Since microbes find formaldehyde not to their liking, we should flush our horns with the stuff after we finish playing, and, just as a precaution and perhaps prevention, we should rinse our mouths out with formaldehyde before we play. That should do wonders for halitosis, too! Whaddaya think?

    Good idea. Why not just keep the horn in a jar of formaldehyde? It'll preserve it, too. If you had a few of them, it would look like Dr. Frankenstein's music studio.
