The old H2O2

My alto reed sounds fine but despite rinsing after every use it got some black (fungus?) growing on it.

Soaked it in Hydrogen Peroxide until the bubbling stopped ( about 20 min), rinsed and used my thumbnail to scrape off the gunk under running water.

90% of it came off, doesn't look brand new but way better.

I'll try it later and see if it plays the same or better.

I spray mine with Mi-T-Mist or Listerine or Spearmint Alcohol or diluted Dr Tichenor's and wipe off excess before putting them up in the D'Adario Reed case
I also have a spray bottle of HP around.
