    A trick I learned after practicing is to place an old reed in the keys that are closed ( not far ) on the sax to help drying.

    I use a hair dryer – set on cold – to properly dry the saxophone, even a quick once over during practice.

    The other thing I’ve noticed is that key combinations I avoid, tend to stick more. I have trouble in G blues going quickly from middle C#-C-Bb and sometimes the keys stick. Now I’m playing that combination more, the keys are working fine.

    I can’t vouch for lighter fluid but I’m guessing many a saxophone player has rolling papers laying around…
