On Brass Band and Sanitation

Banda 69 of Bulacan
(Grabbed from the Internet)
Summer time is on its way now. This season, there are lots of fiestas happening in every town. In our barangay, a thanks-giving fiesta was held last Sunday. Aside from the Mr. and Miss barangay, one of the highlights is the band competition. I haven’t witnessed the said contest.
In connection to this, I just wonder how these members keep their instrument sanitized especially the wind instruments which mostly use mouth to create sound. Such instrument is not on their own and can be used by anyone in the band. In this manner, sanitizing using alcohol is good enough. Do you think using some accessories like cheap brass mouthpiece shank tool is a better option? At least they keep it and use it for their own.
