1)To leave a swab in the same compartment with clarinet is totally wrong.It absorbs saliva and is really dirty(may include ammonia or zinc dioxide).Sometime it may become a nest of micro-organism.It is also harmfull to pads.This is true for all wind instruments. It is also harmfull to silver plating since zinc dioxide or ammnonia is corrosive element to silve.

Everyone i know who has silver plated keys leaves their swab in the case and hav had no problems with the plating. And none of them, including myself, have had problems with the pads.
