There is some kind of green hue forming on some spots on my sax, I know it´s some sort of oxidation.
What do you guys do to treat/ get rid of it?

The green is copper oxide and copper hydroxide. This is not the kind of patina you want. Luckily, I've found a little WD40 will often remove the green and leave the more desirable brown patina. This also may mean that your sax is staying wet in the case. You might try wiping it down before putting it in the case and leaving it out on a stand while at home.
