I just did this, so I figured I'd post a bit of a before and after. I got this Jody Jazz HR* Tenor piece for fairly cheap due to the fact it looked super ugly. Anyway after some toothpaste, water, magic eraser, and some work, it looks pretty good.

Looks very nice. Were you able to eliminate the sour taste in your mouth from playing?
Seems like it, or at least lessened it. This isn't my main piece, so I think I might have to do a lengthy practice time on it to make sure.

Mineral oil is sold in pharmacys and is food grade.
You can also use a bit of olive oil...not regular vegatable oils though
It soaks in a little and will help seal smells and tastes.
When washed reapply

Hmmm the new Phil-Tone Pina Colada.

Tasty!

The main thing you are trying to do with oil is moisturize and seal the piece so that it slows its ability to gas out.
