While I'm promoting the products of others... ;-)

I use this cork grease, which is really great for this climate. In the
summer here in Richmond VA (USA) it gets hot and muggy, and most cork
grease gets goopy (scientific term!) and, as Clark puts it, "migrates"
all over the place. Dr. Slick stays the same consistency year round and
lubricates well for me. I give tubes ( or now the somewhat larger tubs)
for presents to my students.

I can't wait to try the mouthpiece cleaner.
