never used one myself but a friend got one after he ruined a white dress shirt. he never had a problem with his because he would only use it while playing his horn. it came off when the horn when in the case and he also made up a bunch of inserts and changed them regularly. don't know if he still uses it , haven't seen him in over 15 yrs.
