> How not to clean a case:
> One of my 7th grade students recently spilled yogurt in his clarinet case.
> Strange, I know, but it gets worse. To clean the yogurt, he filled up the
> kitchen sink with water and soap and put the whole case in to soak for a
> while. Then he took the case out of the water, dripping wet, put his
> clarinet back in the case, closed it up and left it to sit for about 3
> days!!! This was during a warm spell we had and the stench that resulted
> disgusting. He actually brought the clarinet to his lesson and was going
> play on it with that awful smell and every pad ruined.
> At least, the clarinet itself was a very old, non-name wooden clarinet
> passed down from a family member that was in & out of the repair shop on a
> semi-weekly basis. I had been trying to convince his family all year that
> new student model would be better for him.
> Now he has a new Buffet E11 that he is taking good care of.
