I had three individual cups put aside on the counter as I cleaned the trumpet. I've soaked them seperatly and thought, what would hapen if I got them mixed up, but I see now that is not THAT important, many are marked. Anyway........ I'm going to Stater Bros Tomorrow and going to buy three mini M&M tubes. I will have to empty them first which would be Alright with me... Then If I may I will tape them together and number the tubes 1,2,3, so it will be REALLY easy to keep tabs on which is which. Where do we send our donation for this idea? I thought about this too. but never seem to click the last time I had the Mini M&M's Thanks for sharing your idea.
