After marching band season was over, my alto rascher mouthpiece was in pretty disgusting condition. I put it in boiling water first and then scrubbed it with soap, rinsed it, dryed it and put it back in my case. After a couple days i take it out of my case to find it green! The mouthpiece seems to play ok, but will it stay green? Please reply, thanks.

Never put a hard rubber piece in boiling water. Cold water is the best. Even luke warm water may effect the facing.

Every week I take non-peroxide toothpaste and brush my mouthpieces then rinse it with cold water.

I've washed my S80 D with warm water once.. It was green too.
I just asked around on this forum and got a tip from someone to wash it with olive oil. So I did and now it's nice and black again. (Had to wash it a few times though)
